Cider Gum Eucalyptus Tree
One of the hardiest species of Eucalyptus, Cider Gum Eucalyptus Tree is prized for its round and attractive, fragrant, grayish-silver foliage. With annual pruning you can grow Cider Gum as a large shrub and keep these round, juvenile leaves. Allowed to grow tall, it will quickly become an attractive, upright tree and the foliage will become long and lance shaped. Looks amazing planted next to Arizona Madrone!
