Eucalyptus calycogona

(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)

A native of the semi-arid areas of southern West Australia, south-eastern South Australia and adjoining corners of Victoria and New South Wales where it prefers gravelly soils in an open, sunny position. It will tolerate drought or mild frost.

An evergreen tree to 6 metres with a spread of 3 metres. The multiple stems are erect with smooth greyish bark and gracefully branching; the bark sheds in long, curling strips. The leaves are pale to mid green, glossy, curved and narrowly lanceolate; the flowers occur in groups of 3 to 7 rich pink, white or cream blossoms in winter to spring. The fruit are dark green, quadrangular, valved capsules.

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 translate 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 my seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
