Low Allergen Evergreen Trees

Looking for evergreen tree selections suitable for low allergen gardens?

Trees and allergies often go together but with the right landscape planning, we believe sinus sensitivities can be minimised. We have assisted a number of designers recently with information on selections for childcare centres, playgrounds and schools with a low-allergen focus. While not an exhaustive list, these trees we believe are suitable and are provided below as a starting point.

An erect conical shaped tree which has dark fissured bark which looks black at certain times of the year. This fast growing tree bears showy red male flowers in spring. The female has small spiky cones 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
This is a small shrub with medium frost tolerance for use as a dense narrow flowering screen. Prefering full sun to light shade it produces upright lemon brush-like flowers from late summer to winter. Responds well to pruning. 40cm/27L
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. Leaves are narrow and highly aromatic when crushed smelling strongly of lemon. This tree features lovely cream-coloured flowers in summer. 40cm/27L
This is a lovely tree which flowers from an early age, producing beautiful creamy white, saucer shaped flowers in spring and summer. Leaves are a classic glossy deep green colour with furry brown undersides forming a nice compact evergreen tree with a dense covering of foliage. A hardy and reliable variety which makes it a consistently solid performer in the landscape. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
A dwarf version of Corymbia eximia, the foliage is broad with a strong green colour and may turn a paler yellow/green in the colder months. The trunk adopts a gnarly, crooked appearance with mottled brown bark and in Spring the tree puts on an eye-catching display covering itself in creamy yellow flowers, attracting nectar loving birds. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
This tree is a medium to tall grower, best known for its unusual bark which varies from smooth to rough all the way down the trunk. Often the bark varies presenting an array of colours including grey, yellow, red and brown and occasionally, can be very dark and rough. Very fragrant, white flowers appear during the warmer months. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
A small native tree that exhibits patches of grey, white and reddish-pink bark in older growth on smooth trunks. Its foliage is dark green to greenish-blue and narrow in shape but still holds that typical pauciflora leaf; large, thick and waxy. The flowers attract butterflies, bees and birds. 40cm/27L
Commonly known as the native Frangipani, although not related to the exotic form, this tree bears highly fragrant flower clusters that start out cream and turn to yellow. It is a rainforest tree native to Queensland and New South Wales and its large, glossy leaves give it a tropical look. Growing to 8 metres in ideal conditions, it is capable of providing a nice canopy and the flowers are great for attracting birds and native bees. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
