Description

Eucalyptus gunnii 'Azura': Shrubby Cider Gum. 3-Litre Pot-Grown Plants

Cider Gum Eucalyptus is normally a fast-growing tree, but Azura is a bushy form with less vigour that suits most people's gardens. It has the same fragrant new foliage so beloved by flower arrangers.

Growing Eucalyptus gunnii

Rated at H5 hardiness, it will grow in most locations in the UK that receive full sun and are sheltered. Tolerant of a range of soils and conditions, but is happiest in a fertile, neutral-acid soil.

If left to its own devices, it will quickly become a very large tree, so, unless you want that, tough love is the best way to deal with it: keep it hard-pruned as a shrub from the start. This will promote new growth carrying the loveliest immature leaves. It coppices especially well (cut to a low stool), and could be pollarded as a lollipop with a little extra pruning (cut back to a trunk about 1.5-2 metres high).

In Your Garden Design

Wherever you want magical blue foliage to fill a sunny corner, this is the right choice!
