Bound to make a statement in every space, the striking small-growing Eucalyptus latens ‘Moon Lagoon’ is available at Botanix Plant Supply
An Australian native shrub with blue/silver juvenile foliage, Eucalyptus latens ‘Moon Lagoon’ from Botanix Plant Supply is one of the smaller growing eucalypts with a mature size of 1.5-2m, which can be kept smaller with regular pruning. Perfect as a stand-alone feature or as an excellent small-screen, the juvenile foliage offers an attractive contrast against traditional green and brown native plant palettes.
The foliage matures to a typical eucalypt green, so pruning is encouraged to maintain the blue/silver new growth. The hint of pink blush on the new growing tips, combined with the blue, makes for a striking effect. A reliable performer in a range of conditions, ‘Moon Lagoon’ tolerates both dry areas and frost prone regions. However, it grows best in locations with full sun and well-drained soils.
Many landscape designers are moving toward a planting palette which blends both foliage texture and tone. The use of plants with blue/silver and grey foliage is becoming increasingly popular in recent times. The contrasting foliage of this plant, set amongst greens or as stand-alone plantings, is sure to bring new life to every outdoor space.
