Seedling of Eucalyptus 'Lemon Bush' (E. Citriodora)

Seedling of Eucalyptus 'Lemon Bush' (E. Citriodora) (Eucalyptus citriodora)

This is a little seedling from the James Wong seed range. Its a Eucalyptus that smells strongly of Citronella. It's very nice and a pretty colour too. I shall try to overwinter it in the greenhouse, and keep it as a potted shrub. In the wild it is a huge tree, so I doubt I shall be able to keep it for long, but it's a bit different. I am very intrigued by just how many plants have this very distinctive scent.
