  • Stunning specimen tree

Description, habit,  uses and attributes: An excellent variety that is both versatile, beautiful and extremely hardy. It makes a very attractive nicely shaped specimen tree, both in the juvenile and adult stages of growth.  It can also be grown in a large container on a terrace (air-pots are best for this).  

The Tingiringi Gum produces a lignotuber; it coppices well, providing cut foliage for flower arranging and as a pruned tree, it grows into a striking multi-stemmed screening plant (2-3m tall). The recommended planting distance between each plant is 1.5-1.8m, for hedge or screen. Its fast growth makes it good for biomass production.

Shoots 'n Leaves: Young shoots - silvery blue with pink bits.

Juvenile foliage: The rounded young leaves are amazingly silver, with pink tips in the spring and are densely packed around the young stems. Adult foliage: typical lanceolate oval shape, in blue-green but it too shimmers silver in the breeze.

Bark: Young silvery green bark gives way to stunningly beautiful peeling white bark, which shreds in ribbons revealing an under layer in a rainbow of colours of coffee, grey, orange, green, yellow and pink.

Flowers: Cream coloured flowers,  which are deliciously sweetly fragrant

Leaf Aroma: eucalyptus with very strong warm fruity aromas.

Rate of Growth: Fast 1.5-2.0 metres per year 

Height in maturity, if left unpruned:  Tall   If left to grow unpruned, this variety can achieve a great height of 12 to 20 metres or more either as a single trunk or multi-trunk, depending on the soil type and degree of exposure.  Given plenty of access to moisture during the summer, it can produce a dense bushy crown. Deprived of moisture during the summer months and it will develop a very open, minimalist crown.
Hardiness: very hardy, surviving down to  -18°C
Planting Position and Soil Preference: Enjoys full sun. Good in an exposed location.  Happy in a wide range of soils, ranging from acidic through neutral, to alkaline and of average to good fertility. Tolerates poorly drained soil: grows well on our horrible yellow swampy wet clay soil at Grafton Nursery.
