The elegant Eucalyptus gunnii, Cider Gum tree, is an evergreen that will grow to heights of over 10m in 20 years. They make stately boundary trees to enclose large gardens, to plant alongside long driveways and walkways. They are perfect for park and recreational public spaces where they provide an excellent windbreak and offer shade for picnics.

The main attraction of the Cider Gum is the rounded, silver-blue foliage that dominates newer trees. As the tree ages, the leaves turn to shades of grey-blue and green. The foliage is lightly scented. The bark of the Cider Gum tree peels off in a variety of chalky shades which include cream, grey, green and brown, offering an extra dimension of attraction. The tree has lovely idyllic clusters of white flowers which bloom in late summer, but unfortunately are rarely seen in the UK.

The Cider Gum is fully hardy when mature and can be planted in full sun or partial shade. It can tolerate most soil types but thrives best in well drained, moist soil. Try to choose a sheltered position, preferably facing south, to protect it from harsh winter conditions. This stunning tree offers intricate branches that reach out and form an eye-catching conical shape.

The Cider Gum has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
