Re-stock: more than 12 weeks

Very silver-blue native gum with firm round leaves in pairs. Well-behaved compact size ideal for suburban gardens.

Doesn't need coppicing to maintain its beautiful juvenile leaves and young white bark - which makes it low maintenance, and excellent for flower arranging.

Baby Blue eucalyptus grows happily at the National Arboretum in Canberra so is cold tolerant.
