Product Description

'Azura' is an excellent new selection of the ever popular Eucalyptus tree, made even more suitable for British gardens. It is a much more compact and bushy form than the typical fast-growing Eucalyptus trees, and is also much hardier - reportedly surviving down to -20C.

Both these excellent improvements make it a great specimen for gardeners, and to top that, as the name suggests, it has an amazing Azure blue grey leaf coloration all year round too. And like all Eucalyptus, it has a gorgeous fresh and unique fragrance, so makes an ideal and long lasting cut foliage for the house too.

Grows best in full sun or light shade, it works well in larger pots, when trimmed twice a year, or grow as a specimen in lawns and borders, or even form a hedge with it, as in all these settings you get all round leaf colour.

What Is Supplied

Item 510160 supplied as:
Supplied a s 2 year old well-branched bushes 40-50cm tall.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Leaves are the best shape on young stems. In order to keep the rounded leaves, trees can be cut back to a low framework.

Leave plants to establish for a couple of years before starting hard pruning.

Care Guide

Plants are best grown in full sun with shelter from strong winds when they are young.

Pot-grown plants can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out. 

Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting, and mix some well rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the plant is in place.

Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain. Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots

Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.

Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot, then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling). Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball. Water well.

Pruning:

  • In the second or third spring, cut back to 60-90cm (2-3ft) from the ground for pollards or 5-7.5cm (2-3in) for coppiced plants.
  • Pinch sideshoots to encourage further branching.
  • In subsequent years, cut back annually or every few years to the previous stubs.
  • Apply a balanced general-purpose fertiliser each spring
