It is one of the most widely planted eucalypts in the world. The tree produces welcome shade in the extreme temperatures, and plays an important role in stabilising river banks, holding the soil and reducing flooding. The species is named for a private estate garden near the Camaldoli monastery near Naples (L'Hortus Camaldulensis di Napoli), from where the first specimen came to be described. Red gum is so named for its brilliant red wood, which can range from a light pink through to almost black, depending on the age and weathering. Cold hardy, very fast growing. Like all eucalyptus trees it can grow as much as 6-12 ft per season.

Eucalyptus cinerea - seeds

Silver Dollar Gum, Argyle Apple. The Eucalyptus cinerea grows to an average of 20 to 30 feet tall. Young leaves are round, grey-green, and about 1 inch in diameter and grow opposite each other on the stem. They become longer, more oval shaped with pointed ends as they get older. The flowers are a creamy white and grow in 1 inch clusters. The bark is reddish-brown and fibrous. Because of its aromatic and long lasting quality, the young leaves are a "best seller" as medicines to treat many sicknesses such as: infections, colds, flu, sore throats, bronchitis, pneumonia, aching, stiffness, neuralgia and even some skin infections.
Sow seeds on the surface of sandy mix, water only when nearly dry. Keep warm in bright light. Avoid dry air.
The trick to germinating eucalyptus seeds (which are tiny almost like dust) is keeping them wet. Take the seed packet and add water to allow the "dust" to soak overnight. Set up a container with a mixture of sand and soil. Water well and seal the top with plastic (Saran wrap will work). Place the covered container in a sunny area and seeds will sprout within a week.

Family: Myrtaceae
Origin: Philippines Native, Papua New Guinea
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunKeep soil moistModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersSpice or herbSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Eucalyptus deglupta (Rainbow Eucalyptus) originates from the rainforests of Mindanao, which is the southernmost and easternmost island in the Philippine island group. It is a gorgeous, columnar, tall tree with peeling bark that displays a rainbow of colors. In nature, it can reach 220ft, however normally averages around 80 ft tall. It is a fast grower, though it can be kept to a much smaller size if desired. Generally likes a lot of water and naturally grows in a rain-forest environment. Prefers a humid, cooler tropical climate, unlike Eucalyptus species native to Australia.

This species is hardy to 26-28F, but only for brief periods; will not stand intense or prolonged frosts. This means that the tree is a tropical grower and as such can be grown outdoors only in Florida and perhaps southern Texas and southern California.

Planted as an ornamental street tree in tropical regions for its beautiful bark and stately appearance. The heartwood is red and is used as a timber and ornamental wood. Leaves have pleasant spicy aroma provided by essential oils, like most eucalyptus plants; however it is not as strong in this species.
