Lemon Scented Gum
A tall slender tree with a smooth greyish-white trunk, an open to spreading crown and strong lemon scented foliage. Clusters of white fluffy flowers appear from mid Winter to Summer. Attracts nectar-feeding birds. Suited to most soil types in full sun but prefers a moist well-drained soil. Will tolerate extended dry periods and frost once established. Protect young trees from frost. If required, prune away overcrowded branches to encourage desired structure whilst young. Mulch soil surface to help retain soil moisture.
