Cider gum is a beautiful aromatic addition to your garden that will shy away from the fear of attracting pests. With its evergreen leaves, it will sweeten the air around it and will make a great shade spot at maturity. This tree gets extra bonus points because you can use its leaves for medicinal purposes, decor around the house, or even flower arrangements.
Eucalyptus Gunnii, or Cider gum, is the fastest-growing type of Eucalyptus trees native to Australia. Its round leaves are silvery-blue when they first appear, reaching a deeper shade of silver-green at maturity. On average, the tree grows up to 59 ft (18 m), and it blooms with rich white flowers in spring. Cider gum can also be planted indoors as a fragrant ornamental tree if pruned regularly.
