Eucalyptus cinerea (Argyle Apple)

Argyle Apple, Silver Dollar Tree


Eucalyptus cinerea (Argyle Apple) is an evergreen tree of rounded habit, boasting a lovely fibrous or furrowed, reddish-brown bark which peels on smaller stems. The aromatic foliage is silvery blue-green and rounded when juvenile, resembling large coins. The adult leaves are long, narrow and mid-green.
