Trunk & Bark Stunning deeply furrowed black bark contrasts beautifully with the leaves!
Flower Small white flowers
Exposure Full sun to light shade
Soil Type ‘Maggie’ handles a full range of soils from dry and sandy to waterlogged, clay soils.
Container Plant? Its weeping nature and fragrant foliage makes it a great choice for a deck, porch, or patio.
What we learned in Southern Euc Trials In McDonough, GA (zone 8A), 3 year old Eucalyptus trees had minimal leaf damage and looked great following winters where temps twice reached 6°. In Westerville, NC trees, trees that had die back at -10; have regrown from their base to form large shrubs and small trees.
