Corymbia citriodora

Foliage Evergreen
Form Oval
Mature Size 20 x 8m
Family Myrtaceae
Lemon-scented Gum

A beautiful, tall growing Corymbia (syn. Eucalyptus) with a distinctive, often powdery white to grey coloured bark which curls and flakes off in spring. Its leaves are green, long and slender with an amazing, strong lemon fragrance when crushed. Its strong scent is a distinguishing attribute, with the essential oils produced from this variety often being used in fragrances as well as insect repellents. In summer and autumn, feathery white flowers appear, making it a good source of food for honey bees.

A great feature tree that needs significant space. Great for parks, gardens and wide streetscapes. Bird and bee attracting.

Prefers full sun in well drained soil. Can tolerate most soils and grows well with or without moisture.
