    Eucalyptus alpina

    $1.95 incl GST
    Grampians gum

    Currently out of stock
    Available from April-May 2017

    Eucalyptus alpina or 'Grampians gum' has been more recently renamed Eucalyptus serraensis but for now we are sticking with the old name that people are famiar with. Grampians gum is a small rounded tree to around 4 metres and spreading to maybe 6 metres and with coverage right to ground level. It has leathery leaves and really interesting large 'warty' fruit capsules which are somewhat unique amongst the Eucalypts species in the region in which it occurs naturally.

     

    Eucalyptus alpina (Grampians gum) occurs in the Grampians along ridges and in exposed areas. In Summer these trees are exposed to extremely dry soil conditions and high winds throughout the year. This environment means that this species has evolved to be a very tough and windhardy tree.

     

    Grampians gum performs well in cultivation and is in considerable demand in the regions surrounding the Grampians as an attractive small bushy and reliable tree well suited for windbreaks, screening and shelterbelts. Certainly worth planting in areas beyond its natural range.

    Notes on Maps.

    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.
