Eucalyptus globulus ssp. globulus
(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)
A native of the most southern coast of Victoria, the islands of Bass Strait and Tasmania where it prefers a lowland habitat. It is an evergreen cold-tolerant tree growing to 70 metres (200 ft). The trunk is smooth-barked shedding in strips, the leaves are discolorous, glossy green above and flat bluish-green below Juvenile leaves clasp the stem and are pronounced bluish-green (glaucous) on both sides.
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 before seed set. Standard industry practice offers 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 seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
