Native to South Eastern Australia and Tasmania.
Adaptable to most soils in sunny position, Frost and drought resistant.
Eucalypt's 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 seed that is fine should be sown on the surface of a porous mix and not buried. Seed 1 to 2 mm in diameter can be covered very lightly and seed from 2 mm up can be sown to a depth of the seed width.
Cold stratification of 42 days is recommended for this Eucalypt. Germination may occur without stratifation but if has proved to greatly increase successful germination rates.
This is cood mountain species of Eucalypt that in its native range has a cold winter prior to germinating in spring. This can be replicated by cold stratification in the refrigerator for 42 days. Alternatively over wintering in the garden in cold climates will assist 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, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 16-22°C
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 were discarded.
