Eucalyptus sideroxylon * Red Ironbark, Mugga

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.
