Large native statement tree with a tall, straight trunk, beautifully mottled like designer camouflage, as old bark sheds in summer. Fragrant flowers produce good quality pollen for bees, nectar for honeyeaters; and leaves are eaten by koalas. It's well worth planting if you have the space.

Corymbia maculata - spotted gum

APPEARANCE :  Australian native tree with shedding bark in summer, smooth and cream coloured with grey spots from old bark creating a mottled appearance. Foliage is dark green and glossy with small, fragrant white flowers right through autumn and winter.
USE FOR : Excellent for screening, shade, or as a specimen tree; revegetation and koala habitat. Good paddock tree as the thick bark resists gnawing. A large tree for rural areas and acreage.
PLANTING: Plant in well drained soil in full sun. Apply mulch and continue to water regularly until the plant is established. Usually around 12 weeks. Fertilise using native fertiliser early spring. Avoid clay soils. Doesn't like waterlogged soil, is able to withstand dry periods as it has low water needs compared to other eucalypts.
CARE : Stake and protect from strong wind until the plant is established. Can be frost tender in prolonged frost sites.
HEIGHT :  30m H x 10m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, young healthy plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. You can see an example in the image gallery.
