Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.

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.

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.

Eucalyptus gunnii Blue Ice - seeds

Click to see full-size image

Cider Gum. A tall tree that may reach 80 ft with light, reddish brown peeling bark. The juvenile foliage can be used for fresh or dried arrangements. The flower buds are yellow and the small white flowers in spring and summer are followed by tiny, globlet-shaped seed capsules. Rated hardy to frost and may withstand poor, waterlogged soils in winter, drought tender. The main stem is erect with branching that is mottled with gray-green and orange stems. The small, bluish foliage is quite attractive and it tends to branch well down to the ground. The Eucalyptus smell is not overbearing and it makes quite an attractive landscape specimen or for cut foliage. Closely related to E. archerii.

This species is extensively used by the floral industry for fresh cut or preserved foliage. The leaves are small, blue-green in color and lightly scented. It has survived our Zone 6 winters with only minimum damage. It is definitely one of "the best" of the blue foliage types. This one rates 10 stars out of 10, a rating NONE of other Eucalyptus have attained! It appears to start branching well once it reaches about 12-18" tall. A little slow growing at first, but comes along nicely. Mature size about 15-25 feet.

A very fast growing evergreen tree native to Queensland, Australia. Leaves have a strong lemony scent when crushed. Leaves yield lemon-scented oil used in perfumery. The trunks and branches of this species are powdery white to pinkish and the trunks are usually very straight. In nature the trees will reach 75-100 ft. While this species get very big in nature, its size is easily control with selective pruning and container size when grown in the greenhouse setting. The white blooms are not very distinctive. The blooms are followed by woody urn-shaped capsules about 1/2 inch wide. Eucalyptus citriodora need full sun with a well-drained soil mix for container growing. In the landscape, trees are pretty hardy and tolerate some frost.

Eucalyptus deglupta , Rainbow Eucalyptus, Mindanao Gum, Rainbow Gum

Click to see full-size image Eucalyptus deglupta
Family: Myrtaceae
Rainbow Eucalyptus, Mindanao Gum, Rainbow Gum
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.

Eucalyptus is an enormous and fascinating genus that accounts for more than two-thirds of Australia’s vegetation. The only major environment where they are absent is rainforest. There are about 12 species which occur naturally outside of Australia, while around 700 are Australian endemics. Only 2 species are not found in Australia. One of these, Eucalyptus deglupta, is the only eucalyptus to be found growing naturally in the northern hemisphere, occurring in the southern Phillipines, New Guinea and Indonesia.

Essential oils from the leaves of Eucalyptus have attracted interest since the earliest days of settlement in Australia. One of the first articles of export from the newly established colony of New South Wales in 1788 was a quarter of a gallon of an essential oil steam-distilled from the leaves of Eucalyptus piperita growing on the shores of Port Jackson. Eucalyptus therapeutic properties attracted interest of the botanist Baron Ferdinand von Mueller so he prompted a Victorian pharmacist colleague, Joseph Bosisto, to investigate the commercial production of its essential oil. In 1852 operations were started. This was the beginning of the Australian essential oil industry. By 1900 the industry was firmly established, and for the next fifty years Australia remained the world's largest supplier of eucalyptus oil.

Most species of Eucalyptus go through a change from round and stem-clasping juvenile foliage to long and willowy mature foliage. Some people think of Eucalyptus as those large trees in Australia with willowy leaves that Koalas eat, and others imagine cute little silvery stems used in floral bouquets. Indeed, they are both Eucalyptus: the smaller stems and leaves represent the young plants, and the long willowy leaves come from mature trees.

Many eucalyptus species from desert or subtropical regions have showy flowers, those are usually a bit more cold sensitive. Very often Eucalyptus is regarded as not being hardy outside of the subtropics, which discourages people from planting them in cooler areas. However, most of the species are cold hardy. Practically all of them can withstand some frost. A large number of species are very hardy, withstanding hard freeze for many hours. Some of them can be grown in real cold areas with snowy winters (USDA zone 8 or colder). Eucalyptus hardiness makes this tree very desirable for exotic gardeners in different types of climates.

Besides cold hardiness, these trees have many other advantages: they help to control aphids and other insects, most of them will grow rapidly even in poor soil (as fast as 12 ft per year), and they are very attractive. Eucalyptus foliage is excellent for cut foliage in floral arrangements.

Eucalyptus is much faster growing than most other trees in cultivation and once planted in the ground, can be expected to grow 6 - 12 ft each year, as long as the young tree is healthy and not root-bounded (this is why it is recommended to go with a smaller size eucalyptus plant – it will grow much faster and better than its bigger root-bounded sister). They never go dormant and are able to grow whenever they have access to water and a little warmth, regardless of time of the year. They do better in cultivation than they in their natural habitat in Australia as most gardens and landscap­es offer good soil, and freedom from competition - neither of which they usually get in their homeland. A good heavy mulch around the base of the tree will be a big plus.
