Re-stock: in 8-12 weeks

Kings Park WA features an avenue planting of this majestic fragrant gum. Plant as a wind break in large gardens. Coppice as a shrub in smaller gardens for its divine zesty scent. (Plus coppicing means you can reach those leaves easier, to give them a rub and sniff the scent!)

Koalas love to feed on the lemony leaves - it's an important food tree for them. (And probably tastes delicious)
