Eucalyptus leucoxylon ‘Scarlet’ is a reliable performer and has wide environmental tolerances, making it well suited for street or parkland plantings. A uniform habit and predictable mature size makes it also appropriate for domestic and commercial landscape use.
‘Scarlet’ is a small to medium tree, 8 metres heigh by 4 metres wide, and can tolerate a range of conditions, performing best under full sun in well-drained soil. It has a rounded open canopy making it a perfect specimen or shade tree. An outstanding flowering period from autumn to spring makes ‘Scarlet’ a bird attracting winter wonder and a perfect addition to any native garden.
Grafting also takes away the issue of foliage variation that often can be a problem with seed grown forms. Like other leucoxylon varieties, ‘Scarlet’ maintains its decorative bark.
Botanix Plant Supply has supplied ‘Scarlet’ to a number of residential, local government and commercial developments, evaluating its success over a number of years.
