Eucalyptus coccifera (Tasmanian Snow Gum)
Hardiness level Green
If you like peppermint you will love this tree as the long, slender grey-green foliage emits a strong minty scent. The trunk is a patchwork of silver, grey and white, often with brown striations. The habit is variable as some trees grow shorted and wider while others grow taller to 15m.
These come from the sub-alpine and alpine regions of Tasmania, often right by the tree line. The trees can be both coppiced and pollarded, and then the new growth is wonderful for flower arrangements.
