‘Azura’ is an excellent new selection of the ever-popular Eucalyptus tree and is especially suitable for British gardens. It is a much more compact and bushy form than the typical fast-growing Eucalyptus trees that we are more familiar with, and is also much hardier – reportedly surviving through winter down to -20°C. This new compact form and cold-hardiness make it a great specimen plant for even the most inexperienced of gardeners, and as the name suggests, it has an amazing azure blue-grey leaf coloration all year round. Of course, like all Eucalyptus, ‘Azura’ also has a uniquely gorgeous fresh fragrance, which makes it an ideal and long-lasting plant for cut foliage for bouquets and arrangements. Growing best in full sun or light shade, this Eucalyptus works well in larger pots, when trimmed twice a year, or when grown as a specimen in lawns and borders. You can even form a hedge with it, as in all these situations you get good all-round leaf colour. Supplied as an established plant in a 13cm pot, ready for immediate planting.
