Eucalyptus Species, Plant Profile and Landscaping Uses
Eucalyptus Species are also known as Gum Trees or Eucalypts. Eucalyptus species are the most important tree species in Australia. With many species Eucalypts are suitable for a variety of landscaping uses, as street trees and in the home garden.
Eucalyptus trees and species have evolved to be an extremely drought tolerant species. If planted as seedlings the main problems are weeds and browsing animals. Protection at the early stages of growth will ensure a greater survival rate.
Eucalypts have a valuable place in landscaping, Eucalyptus papuana, Corymbia aparrerinja and the other species we call ‘Ghost Gums’ are used for the striking white trunks.
Flowering eucalypts such as Eucalyptus leucoxylon or Yellow Gum are long flowering and reasonably fast growing. Eucalyptus kitsoniana is a smaller growing Eucalypt suitable for street planting or even container growing. Eucalyptus maculata is another popular landscape tree.
