Description

A lovely tree, native to the sub alpine habitats of eastern Australia, Eucalyptus pauciflora subsp niphophila has fantastic grey and cream flaking bark which develops well on semi-mature plants. The leaves are long, narrow and grey-blue in colour, looking extremely elegant from a distance.

The bark is extremely ornamental and gives Eucalyptus pauciflora subsp niphophila superb value as a winter interest plant!
