In addition to the colorful pink blooms
this tree survives more cold than most of the Australian eucalyptus on the market.
The near black bark contrasting with
the light grey leaves makes Eucalyptus sideroxylon a standout even when it is not in bloom.
Eucalyptus sideroxylon is a favorite tree for
attracting hummingbirds to your garden. During our Christmas Bird Count
these trees can be depended upon to have a few choice warblers and a
wealth of hummingbird activity.
