Corymbia citriodora ‘Scentuous’ is a popular Lemon-Scented Gum, making it perfect for space-restricted sites.
Corymbia citriodora ‘Scentuous’ is a grafted form of the popular Lemon-Scented Gum. At 6m to 7m high and 3m to 4m wide, its compact, mature size makes it perfect for space-restricted sites.
Extremely useful in the landscape, it is an ideal Australian native specimen tree for domestic landscapes, and also an excellent performer in avenue or driveway plantings.
‘Scentuous’ is grafted to ensure compact mature height and form, so it is well-suited for street plantings or parklands where uniform growth and habit is required.
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.
A hardy small tree, ‘Scentuous’ will tolerate most soil types and conditions, but will perform best in full sun with a well-drained soil.
‘Scentuous’ features smooth, white bark, complemented by fine, softly weeping, graceful foliage and a strong, characteristic lemon scent. Flowers are white to cream and clusters are produced in spring/summer. It is highly bird-attracting, making it a great addition to a native garden.
Botanix Plant Supply produce ‘Scentuous’ in 35lt air-prune pots, and are now taking pre-orders for the 2018 planting season.
