Eucalyptus subcrenulata

Tasmanian Alpine Yellow Gum

Closely related to Tasmanian yellow gum, but occupying more mountainous terrain, Eucalyptus subcrenulata is a fairly fast-growing, evergreen tree with a spreading, open habit, an attractive specimen tree for larger gardens. The bark is grey, peeling in vertical strips to reveal smooth patches of olive green, tan and blue-grey. New shoots emerge crimson, changing through bronze to green. The foliage is highly aromatic; the juvenile leaves are glossy apple-green, often with a red edge, becoming lance-shaped, pendulous and deeper apple green as the tree ages. The creamy-white flowers, in groups of three, are borne between August and October, and are very attractive to bees. Tasmanian alpine yellow gum is useful for hedging 2-3m in height, as it responds well to coppicing and remains bushy at the base. Like many eucalypts, it will regenerate from the base if cut back by a severe frost.
