    Corymbia citriodora

    $1.95 incl GST
    lemon scented gum
    This product has a minimum quantity of 5

     

    Corymbia citriodora or 'lemon scented gum' is one of the best known and widely cultivated of the eucalypts not only in Australia but also overseas. Lemon scented gum is closely related to equally spectacular Corymbia maculata (spotted gum) but can be easily distinguished by having a plain cream/white trunk, lemon scented, narrower leaves and a much more open canopy.

     

    Corymbia citriodora has the potential to grow int a very large tree, particularly if it has access to underground moisture. Lemon scented gum should therefore not be planted close to buildings and other fixed assets.

     

    As lemon scented gum occurs naturally in tropical and sub tropical regions it is frost sensitive when young. It  will need to be protected as a seedling if planted in frost affected areas. It appears to be tolerant of a wide range of soils and conditions however it is suggested that, as a general rule,  frontline coastal sites be avoided.

    Generally, the concentrated clusters of markers represent the geographical range where this species occurs naturally. Outlying markers and geographically disassociated markers represent observations of the species in cultivation and/or recorded in herbaria etc.
