The Eucalyptus gunnii ‘Silverana’ more commonly known as Cider Gum, is a fast-growing eucalyptus tree. It features an intense silvery-blue evergreen foliage that emits an extraordinary eucalyptus scent. Cider Gum is more compact than other eucalyptus plants and shrub-like in habit in comparison.
The leaves can be collected for flower arrangements or drying. The younger shoots are coated in a waxy, white powder substance until they have hit maturity when their colouration hue is revealed. The juvenile leaves of the Eucalyptus gunnii are a stronger blue than the more mature leaves.
Plant the Eucalyptus gunnii in direct sunlight for optimal growth. The bark of the Cider Gum is powdery grey, however it does sprout white flowers during the Summer which are followed by small gum nuts.
The more common name of Cider Gum is believed to have come from the native people of Australia, as the Eucalyptus gunnii has sap that can be tapped it is said that Australians would ferment this fluid to create a cider-like drink.
