A magnificent tree with flaking bark in shades of grey, cream, green and brown. It has silvery-blue, rounded young leaves which give way to long, glaucous, sickle-shaped adult foliage. It is probably the most well-known gum in this country as it is often seen in milder garden, where it is completely hardy except in abnormally cold winters.Garden care: Requires minimal pruning if grown as a tree, removing any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. For the best juvenile foliage, prune in early spring cutting back the stems to two or three buds above the base. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
