Noteworthy Characteristics

‘Mappa Tassie', named so for its leaf that’s shaped like Tasmania, is esteemed as one of if not the most cold hardy of all Eucalyptus snow gum species. It is a patient growing, small to medium size tree that should be a featured ornamental in your landscape. All grown up it can achieve a height of around 20 to 30 feet (maybe 40 feet?), depending on local climate. Size is easy to control and responds well to pruning. It can be encouraged to grow in hot climates but generally performs best in cool climates. The blue-green juvenile leaves are oval in shape and born on semi-pendulous stems that take on distinctive burgundy highlights. The large adult leaves - almost the size of the palm of your hand - are a glossy olive green. Small, white dandelion type flowers in late spring to early summer. The trunk is artistically contorted; its bark is smooth with patterned white, cream, green and grey patches, which sheds in ribbons from the stems and branches. Requires decent drainage but is not extremely fussy like some alpine eucalyptus. The tree adapts well to any soil condition, is salt tolerant, and is disease resistant and long-lived. ‘Mappa Tassie’ is a Snow Gum that grows all over the alpine regions of Eastern Australia and is highly rated for its cold hardiness. Can be grown in a pot but might not be as cold hardy.

 

USDA Hardiness Zones & Details: 6b-11 (please see details below)
