Jounama Snow Gum Eucalyptus Tree
Another exceptional subspecies of Eucalyptus pauciflora, the Jounama Snow Gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora ssp. debeuzevellei) has proven itself a particularly cold hardy selection for the Pacific Northwest. The peeling, flaking bark is just as fantastic as the other snow gums revealing a multitude of colors in late summer. Blows birch bark out of the water, and without all the many disease and climate-adapted issues of that over-used (in our city anyways) genus. This subspecies typically grows a bit larger than the niphophila subspecies or Eucalyptus pauciflora, and also has slightly wider leaves. Give it no summer water and room to grow in full sun.
