This is a small tree to 3 or 4 metres that produces very attractive 'new' juvenile blue foliage sought after by the cut flower industry.
This is a mallee shrub with blue-green small narrow leaves when young. Mature foliage is green green leaf so to maintain blue foliage the plant needs to be kept pruned to keep producing blue foliage. This is an excellent cut flower and foliage shrub. Very drought and frost tolerant. Grows best in full sun and creates a useful screen or low windbreak.
The species is a hybrid of Eucalyptus latens from Western Australia
