For sites where a seed grown C.citriodora is desired, but cannot be utilised because of space or height restrictions, ‘Scentuous’ allows an architect or designer the features of a lemon scented gum, without the size issues.
‘Scentuous’ features smooth white bark, which is complemented by fine, softly weeping foliage and a strong, characteristic lemon scent. Flowers are white to cream and clusters are produced spring/summer. It is highly bird-attracting, making it a great addition to a native garden.
‘Scentuous’ is grafted to ensure compact mature height and form, so it is well-suited for street plantings or parklands where a uniform habit is required. A hardy small tree, ‘Scentuous’ will tolerate most soil types and conditions, but will perform best in full sun with a well drained soil.
Botanix Plant Supply will have good numbers of 40cm stock available December 2012.
