Sizing guide

Eucalyptus gunnii, commonly known as Cider Gum, is a fast-growing evergreen tree known for its attractive blue-green, round juvenile leaves and peeling bark. This tree can reach heights of 15-25 meters, making it suitable for larger gardens, parks, or as a feature tree.

To grow Eucalyptus gunnii in Australia, plant it in a sunny location with well-draining soil. It tolerates a wide range of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. Water regularly during the establishment phase, but once established, it is drought-tolerant and requires minimal watering. Mulch around the base to retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Eucalyptus gunnii can withstand frost and is resistant to most pests and diseases. Pruning is generally not necessary, but you can remove lower branches to create a more tree-like form if desired. Its ornamental foliage, rapid growth, and hardiness make it a popular choice for Australian gardens and landscapes.
