Eucalyptus caesia Gungurru also known as 'Silver Princess', is a delightful small tree for any garden or landscape. It grows to 6-8m tall and has a gentle weeping growth habit. Native to the Wheatbelt region of WA, it produces large pinkish-red blossoms from winter to spring (which are a great food source to native birds).

Young branches and stems are red, which age to a smooth white. A great waterwise feature tree suited to most well-drained soils in a full sun position. It can be pruned to maintain shape and will benefit with a feed from a native fertiliser.

Pronunciation: Yew-kal-ip-tus
