Eucalyptus leucoxylon megalocarpa

Large Fruited Yellow Gum

This Australian native tree is small to medium in height with a compact, spreading habit. Similar to 'Rosea', it produces large pink, bird attracting flowers from late winter to spring and grows to a similar height with a good canopy. Foliage is olive-grey in colour and spear shaped. This variety performs well in areas of low humidity and it should be noted that it is prone to limb drop in areas susceptible to windy conditions.
