A lovely shrub or small tree in the myrtle family, native to the southeastern part of New South Wales, Australia but cultivated in other parts of the world as an ornamental. Its trunk is covered by flaking, grayish-green bark, mottled with yellow and it presents elliptical, aromatic, bluish-green leaves with a powdery white bloom and clusters of small, cream colored flowers. The foliage of Eucalyptus pulverulenta is often used in flower arrangements. A beautiful, drought tolerant species for warm-temperate gardens. For best results, the seeds should be cold stratified for two months after sowing.
