Fuchsia Mallee

Eucalyptus forrestiana

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

A native of the south coast of Western Australia in a relatively small area around Esperance where it likes light to heavy well-drained soils in an open sunny position. It is drought tolerant but dislikes frosts.

A perennial, multi-stemmed tree (called a Mallee) it grows to a height of 5 metres with a spread of 3 metres. The stems are erect, with pendant branches, smooth grey-brown bark and a densly spreading crown. The leaves are dark green, lanceolate, erect, prominently mid-ribbed, finely acuminate, and 10cm long. The flower buds are yellow while the flowers are red and yellow and appear midsummer to autumn.

This tree is commercially grown for the very attractive flowers in the cut flower trade both in Australia and overseas.

Offered is a packet of 200 seeds (includes chaff) and Grownotes. Buyers should read the disclaimer below.

DISCLAIMER.

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.
