Highly recommended for gardens or locations where additional watering is difficult. Please note you will need to water occasionally when young and establishing its root system.
Eucalyptus gillii. Curly Mallee, Arkaroola Mallee and Siver Mallee being some of the common names.
This is truly a hardy drought-tolerant native tree. If you grow with abundant water its habit is fairly traditionally a mallee but in harsh conditions, with slower growth, the limbs are often bent and twisted hence the common name Curly Mallee. Flowering in Spring and early Summer the flowers are a pale yellow in colour and can be so abundant as to weight the limbs down, sometimes to breaking point.
Generally, this is a small tree much higher than a couple of metres. The leaves are sometimes used in floral arrangements, while the tree will stand occasional cutting back if it gets too large for the chosen location.
