Eucalyptus dalrympleana

Mountain Gum

Good as a specimen tree for large gardens or landscape planting, Eucalyptus dalrympleana is a large, fast-growing, evergreen tree with an upright, stately habit, which can reach 120’/37m in height if left unpruned. The older bark, in shades of salmon, coffee, cream and silvery-grey, peels to reveal pure white new bark underneath. New shoots are coral, changing to green, and the ovate juvenile foliage emerges in shades of pink and bronze. The aromatic adult foliage is long, almost sickle-shaped and blue-green, often with a red edge. The white flowers, in groups of three, are very attractive to bees. Like many eucalypts, it will regenerate from the base if cut back by a severe frost, and it can be coppiced or grown as a multi-stem tree. Mountain gum holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
