Eucalyptus diversifolia or 'SA coastal mallee' is a front line coastal species that occurs naturally from Nelson in South Western Victoria through coastal South Australia and accross the Great Austrlian Bight to Western Australia. SA coastal mallee occurs extensively on Kangaroo Island where it can be seen growing as a small shrub on windswept limestone cliffs facing the Southern Ocean.
Eucalyptus diversifolia (SA coastal mallee) when grown in more favourable conditions forms a very attractive mallee type tree to 5 or 6 metres. It has slaty grey smooth bark and produces a highly-perfumed, heavily laden cream flowering display in Spring. Fresh green foliage. This is the ideal small tree for exposed, alkaline coastal sites.
