A very handsome tree that grows to 25 metres in height but is typically between 8-12 m in cultivation with a long sinuous smooth trunk with a dense umbrella-shaped crown.
The new bark is an attractive salmon pink that turns grey before being shed in long slivers that hang from the tree. At dawn and dusk, these make a beautiful sight with the salmon colors and the hanging bark.
Ovate flower buds with orange caps open to white flowers in spring to summer.
Native to inland Western Australia.
Prefers light to medium well-drained soil in an open sunny position, drought and frost 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. 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.
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 18-22°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.
