On the subject of selecting and planting trees this time of year, we immediately think of those traditional deciduous lines synonymous with bold autumn colour. But we ask that you don’t overlook the crispness of Australian natives. Their cool blue and icy green shades instil their own unique beauty year-round in the landscape and provide a welcome contrast to a strictly green palette.

For a complete package of cool-coloured leaf and intriguing bark, Eucalyptus leucoxylon ‘Euky Dwarf’ offers the complete package. It is a shapely native with a light open canopy, single trunk and smooth bark that sheds. A year-round performer, its greyish green leaves once mature is offset by masses of pink, red and sometimes cream blossom from late autumn to early summer. Its size makes it ideal for small gardens and landscapes, planted singularly for contrast or in groups for a wonderful mini bushland effect.

If your focus is purely bark related, the compact growing Corymbia citriodora ‘Scentuous' syn. 'Dwarf Pink’ with its beautiful salmon pink bark and slender aromatic leaves will definitely captivate. 

This Australian native is a medium sized tree, usually multi stemmed, stout and solid in its growth habit. It has yellow and blue-grey coloured bark with a mottled appearance. The foliage is a glossy dark green on top with paler undersides. During the warmer months, yellow flowers are produced, followed by large gumnuts. 40cm/27L
This Australian native tree naturally occurs on the tablelands of New South Wales and is capable of tolerating difficult, dry stony soils. Juvenile foliage is oval in shape and grey-green in colour whilst the mature, adult leaves are more ovate. The short trunk can be smooth or box like (fissured). Flowering occurs from September to January during which small white flowers appear. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
This is a slightly narrow domed tree that doesn't shed its branches. It has a smooth trunk that may be slightly mottled. The bark is a pinky salmon in colour.

New growth starts off pink with leaves turning to various shades of green as the foliage matures. It forms white flowers in summer, followed by green, bird attracting fruits. The foliage is maintained to the base of the plant giving a year-round lush, full appearance. This variety can also be pleached to a central trunk to raise the height of the lower foliage. 30cm/14L 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L 150L
This attractive Australian native tree is loved for its smooth bark that is slightly purple in colour. It has large and twisted limbs and a very large expanded trunk base. It bears white flower clusters in spring. This tree has opposite leaves compared to alternate leaves as seen in eucalypt tree varieties.

A rainforest tree native to the North-Eastern parts of Australia, this is a fast growing tree which is rarely affected by pests and diseases. Dome-like in shape, it develops a very dense foliage cover of dark green, leathery leaves providing good shade for the summer months. This variety rarely sheds limbs and has salmon coloured bark which flakes off over summer revealing orange-brown tones on the trunk. Summer also brings clusters of small white flowers whose stamens give them a decorative fluffy appearance. 40cm/27L 100L
