Noteworthy Characteristics

Nick-named ‘Sheila’, Aussie for “Girl," Eucalyptus stellulata ‘Sheila’ is a medium sized tree and one of the best eucalyptus to use as a shade tree. All grown up she reaches to about 35 to 40 feet tall and has a mature shape that resembles an old, rounded oak. It has rather short adult leaves with parallel veins, and it is therefore sometimes considered a "snow gum," but interestingly the juvenile leaves are rounded, opposite and sessile. Tiny fruit pods are preceded by intriguing, attractive, star-shaped flowers. The bark is an outstanding olive green, copper and white, and peels on the upper trunk and limbs. Unlike the true snow gums, it inhabits valley floors and boggy places where the drainage is too poor for other snow gums. The perfect choice for a wet area in the landscape where you want a large tree. 'Sheila' is disease resistant and long-lived, easy to control, responds well to pruning, and is highly rated for cold hardiness.
