RED BOX or SILVER DOLLAR GUM
(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)
A native of the western slopes and tablelands of New South Wales and extending to Eastern Victoria, this evergreen tree likes light to medium well-drained soils and accepts shallow soils on a rising terrain. It prefers a sunny position and is both frost and drought hardy.
A handsome tree to 10-15 metres with blue-grey foliage at maturity. The juvenile leaves are large, orbicular, silvery-blue and much used in the cut flower industry by lopping to keep the juvenile leaves in production. The photographs are of a mature tree, mature foliage with flower-buds and juvenile leaves.
Offered is a packet of 25 seeds (no chaff) with propagation notes. 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.
