Commonly known as the Wolgan snow gum or mallee snow gum Eucalyptus gregsoniana forms a single, or multi-stemmed lignotuberous mallee stemmed weeping habit with young stems being burgundy-red in colour that changes to a white-grey bark that is shed in ribbons with age.
Thick and leathery lanceolate, glossy grey-green leaves contrast well with the red-coloured stems and the white aged smooth trunk. Flowering occurs during the summer months in clusters of fluffy white flowers.

An attractive mallee that performs well in extremely cold, frosty environments.
Prefers well-drained soils in an open sunny position, frost and wind hardy, drought tolerant.

Occurs naturally at high altitudes in the Blue Mountains, the Budawang Range, and the Braidwood area of New South Wales.

Eucalyptus gregsoniana was previously known as Eucalyptus pauciflora var. nana until 1973 when the name

Growing Instructions

Eucalypts germinate readily from seed and are generally considered one of the easiest natives to grow from seed.

Depending on the species Eucalyptus seed comes in various sizes from very fine to several millimetres long.
As a rule of thumb, fine seeds should be sown on the surface of a porous mix and not buried. Seeds 1 to 2 mm in diameter can be covered very lightly and seeds from 2 mm up can be sown to a depth of the seed width.

Cold stratification of 28 days is recommended for this Eucalyptus.

This particular species of Eucalyptus is commonly found in mountainous areas and requires a cold winter before it can start to grow in the spring. To replicate this condition, you can put the seeds through a process called cold stratification in the refrigerator for 28 days. If you live in a colder climate, you can also leave the seeds outside during winter to encourage germination.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoiding the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 16-22°C

  1. Sow seed on the surface of a porous seed-raising mix. The seed will lodge in the pores of the mix once watered.
  2. Sprinkle a very light covering of the seed-raising mix over the seed if required to hold the seed in place. Do not bury the seed deeply.
  3. Water with a fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed.
  4. Ensure the mix is moist but not water-logged.
  5. Place the container in a plastic bag.
  6. Place the bagged container in the refrigerator for 28 days.
  7. Place in a warm shaded or semi-shaded position to avoid dying out.
  8. Keep warm & moist, and avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.
  9. Germination generally occurs in 10-28 days when moved to warmer temperatures after the period of cold treatment.

General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they are discarded.

Best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum temperature for germination is around 18-22°C
Sow seed in a seed-raising mix just below the surface.
Water with a fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed.
Germination generally occurs in around 10-28 days.
