Giant Water Gum
Giant Water Gum

  • Price: $20.00

A small shrub with mid-sized glossy green leaves with attractive pink new growth that is a distinguishing feature of this cultivar. White powder-puff flowers are followed by mauve fruits that attract birds. It is good for pots, as a screen or hedge. It grows well everywhere except in our coldest areas and is considered by some as the best privacy plant. It reaches around 2.5m tall and wide, is very dense, looks superb and hardly, if ever, needs pruning. It tolerates light frost and ordinary soil, mildly acidic to mildly alkaline. It is also an outstanding nesting plant for birds as it is very dense and has forks for nests.

Comments Warnings : They produce small white flowers which are then followed by prodigious amounts of edible purple fruit.
