  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: neutral to slightly acidic soil that doesn't dry out
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Eucalyptus are grown for their fab evergreen foliage, which is a soft grey-green and is often used by florists. This new form has been found to be much hardier than the others, and has been known to withstand temperatures as low as -20C. It also differs from its close relatives in that it is more compact and shrubby, although with careful pruning, it can be trained to have a tree-like silhouette. This is a wonderful new addition to the the range. It will make a great specimen in the shrub border and can also be used as hedging.

  • 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.

Eventual height & spread

Hi, would this plant work in a large container?

Grow

Hello, These plants produce a large tap root, so ultimately will be much happier (and longer-lived) if they are grown in the ground.

Helen

Hi - is this suitable to plant either side of a bay window, or would there be a problem planting it so close to a house? i.e. would there be potential for the roots to interfere with the building? Thanks.

ealinggardener

Hello, This plant tends to produce a long tap root, so I would not recommend planting it too close to your house.

Does this dwarf variety seriously only grow to 5m high? Has this been created on a dwarf stock... ?

Losttheplot

Hello there This Eucalyptus is a relatively new variety so we haven't seen it reach maturity yet, but we have been advised by the growers that it has a much more compact, shrubby growth. Hope this helps.

How long does this take to reach its eventual height? How long would it take to get about 3m in height?

Cottagegardenbeginner

Hello there Eucalyptus gunnii 'Azura' is a new cultivar so we don't have the history of growing it, but it is fast growing like most eucalyptus. It is hard to be precise on how fast it will grow as that can be influenced by external factors, but it should reach 5m within 3-5years and then will fill out. Hope this helps.

How tall a eucalyptus gunnii azura can you supply. And are the leaves grey? I am puzzled by the the name 'azura'

none

Hello, The ones we sell are in a 2-litlre pot and will be approximately 30cm tall. The foliage is a grey colour - just as it is in the photos.

What type of drainage will this eucalypt tolerate?

Demetri

Hello there Eucalyptus gunnii 'Azura' prefers a moist, but well drained soil. Hope this helps

Hi, what's the bark like on this euc? Also, I assume from the photo it has showy blooms, is that so? Many thanks

TurquoiseTranquility

Hello, This has only recently been introduced, so there is still some mystery surrounding it. The species do tend to have showy flower clusters and smooth greenish white bark that is shed in summer. Azura is said to be a more compact form, so I suspect it is similar to the species in other regards.
