Full Product Details

Product Information

Fall for the intensely fragrant foliage of this recent addition to the world of Eucalyptus, coated in evergreen colour regardless of the season.

Eucalyptus are ever-popular trees in British gardens, thanks to their aromatic leaves that last for years and showy springtime flowers.

‘Cinerea’ stands out with rounded foliage that shimmers in a silvery shade of green, almost blue, forming a dense canopy with ease. The bark of the tree boasts fascinating vertical detail and is striking reddish-brown in colour.

Both the wood of the plant and the decorative leaves share the instantly recognisable fragrance of eucalyptus oil, making this variety a darling introduction to patio pots or borders – just wherever you can best enjoy the smell emitted!

Once matured, late spring brings a scattering of white and waxy flowers - beautifully ornamental.

Very hardy and thrives best in full sun, while the fresh fragrance lends this long-lasting plant to cut foliage use in bouquets and formal floral arrangements inside the home.

Supplied as an established plant in a 24cm pot, approximately 60-80cm tall, ready to plant.

Top Tips

Leave plants to establish for a couple of years before starting hard pruning.

Care Information

  • Plants are best grown in full sun with shelter from strong winds when they are young.
  • Pot-grown plants can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out. 
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting, and mix some well rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the plant is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain. Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place in the hole at the same level as in the pot, then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling). Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball. Water well.
  • Apply a balanced general-purpose fertiliser each spring

Pruning:

  • In the second or third spring, cut back to 60-90cm from the ground for pollards or 5-7.5cm for coppiced plants.
  • Pinch sideshoots to encourage further branching.
  • In subsequent years, cut back annually or every few years to the previous stubs.
