Eucalyptus

Often fast-growing, Eucalyptus are impressive evergreen trees or large shrubs mostly native to Australia. Depending on the species, they display architectural shapes, striking bark, great-looking foliage, often aromatic, and clusters of small, white, yellow or red flowers. Easy to grow, long-lived, deer resistant, they make wonderful windbreaks, shade or specimen trees.
