Rose Gum or Flooded Gum
(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)
A native of the northeastern New South Wales and southeastern Queensland coastal plains where it likes medium to heavy well-drained soils in an open, sunny position. It dislikes both frost and drought.
An evergreen tree to 60 metres (190 ft) with a spread of 5 metres, it is a smaller tree in cultivation but still a very tall tree. The stem is erect and straight (sometimes 2 metres (7 ft) across) and branching with a short stocking of rough, grey bark at the base and smooth, powdery white bark above.
The densely textured crown consists of glossy, dark green, lanceolate leaves to 20cm long. The flower buds are globular and are held close to the branches (sessile) in groups of 3 to ten while the flowers are greenish-white and appear winter to spring.
Offered is a 5 gram packet of approx. 3300 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.
