The trunk is erect, straight and branching with a smooth, white bark and a graceful, spreading crown. The leaves are a light green 16cm long and the flowers are greenish-white and appear autumn to winter.
This tree has been listed as endangered because it occurs in a small area around Chinchilla but does not grow in a national park or State reserve.
Offered is a packet of 200 seeds (includes chaff) and Grownotes. Buyers should read the disclaimer below.
All Eucalyptus/Corymbia seed is harvested from the wild under licence and is sold as a combination of fertilised/unfertilised (chaff) seed. In many cases it is not possible to tell the difference. The ratio of fertilised seed varies greatly and depends wholly on weather conditions prior to seed set. Standard industry practice is to offer 200 seeds per packet which translates to something like 10 to 30 viable seeds (which have not been counted). If the above is not acceptable to you, please do not purchase any of the above seeds.
All seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
