Description

Eucalyptus macrocarpa, known as Mottlecah, is a small native mallee tree. It has large flowers, silver green foliage and large gumnuts with a silver, powdery coating.

This dense, mallee-type tree has the largest of all the eucalypt flowers, it’s blooms are a spectacular red to pink-red with a diameter of 10cm. Flowering occurs from early spring to mid summer and the gumnuts which follow the flowers are also an interesting feature of the tree, being very large with a powdery grey covering.

As a species native to relatively dry areas, Eucalyptus macrocarpa is best suited to cultivation in climates which have a dry summer. It has been grown in sub tropical districts but cannot be regarded as reliable in those areas. It prefers well-drained soil, but tolerates sandy and poor soils. Position in a full sun or part shade location, and is coastal, frost and drought tolerant.

The highly ornamental look and contrast foliage of the Eucalyptus macrocarpa makes it an ideal feature tree and is also loved by nectar-loving honeyeaters.

 

  • Common Name.

Mudelka; Rose of the West.

 

  • Germination.

Sow Eucalyptus macrocarpa seed in a seed-raising mix just below the surface. Soaking seeds for 24 hours can help soften the seed coat and encourage germination. Water with a fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed. Germination generally occurs in around 10-28 days.

 

Disclaimer:

We personally count every seed packet to ensure it contains at least the specified number of seeds. However, mistakes can happen, so please reach out if you notice any inconsistencies.

These seeds are believed to meet the standard viability percentage for their species, sourced either from our own SAB nursery or from reputable, trusted breeders.
