This is a compact growing, multi-branched snow gum capable of tolerating very cold conditions once established. We grow this specimen with a single trunk but naturally it is a multi-stemmed mallee with a weeping habit. The young stems are burgundy-red in colour. Thick, leathery, blue-green foliage contrasts well with these red coloured stems and smooth white to grey coloured bark which peels off in ribbons. This variety is summer flowering, producing fluffy white clusters of flowers.
