Unlike other varieties of Cider Gum, Eucalyptus gunnii 'Azura' has a naturally compact and bushy growth habit, making it an ideal choice for a medium sized garden, or as a backdrop shrub in a wide border, of a large garden. With evergreen blue-grey rounded leaves it looks fantastic when planted alongside plants with silvery foliage and plants with flowers in shades of white, purple and blue. It is extremely hard and can withstand temperatures as low as -20C (-4F). so it grows fine in British gardens. Its stems are popular with professional florists, so in summer why not cut a few from your own 'Azura', and use in vases with cut flowers from your garden. Height: 5m (16'). Spread: 2.5m (8').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Height Up to 500cm (196in)
Spread Up to 250cm (98in)

Plant eucalyptus trees into any fertile, non alkaline, free draining soil that does not dry out. Choose a position in full sun with shelter from cold winds.
Feed and water eucalyptus trees regularly until fully established. Once established, eucalyptus trees are reasonably drought tolerant and will require less attention. Unless it is intended as a specimen tree, Eucalyptus will need regular pruning in early spring to restrict its vigorous growth. Cut back all stems to 3 buds above soil level or to a permanent low framework.
