Eucalyptus woodwardii – Lemon Flowered Gum

Smoky-grey leaves, a weeping habit and a stunning display of bright yellow flowers make this the perfect choice for medium sized yards. It will survive in very dry conditions and grows to around 10m tall. It is quite an upright tree (will grow to around 3m across) so you don’t need an enormous bush block to throw one in. They prefer a well drained soil and do not like to be over-watered. I planted this one the week my daughter was born and she turns four next month… it is now around 4m tall and looks beautiful as the feature tree in the backyard.

How great do these flowers look? The bees love them, and so will you.
