Tingiringi Gum Eucalyptus Tree
Tingiringi Gum Eucalyptus Tree is one of the best of the hardy eucalypts for our climates, featuring beautiful silvery glaucus leaves that shimmer in the slightest breeze. Immature foliage is rounded, very silvery and closely set on the stems and develops the classic pendulous eucalyptus leaf as it matures. Bark begins silvery but matures to a rich deep tan color and remains very smooth even on large specimens. Reportedly cold hardy to 0ºF. and can grow up to 60′ tall in its native Australia, but will likely get to about 30′ here in the Northwest.
