Noteworthy Characteristics

Eucalyptus manniferra ssp. elliptica 'Grace' is an evergreen tree named such for it's graceful habit. It is a more cold tolerant than the species. This species is one of the fastest growing in cultivation.  Here in the Atlanta, Georgia area there is a specimen that has reached 20’ in height from seed, in two years!  ‘Grace’ is disease resistant, long-lived, and highly rated for her cold hardiness. Size is easy to control and responds well to pruning.  All grown up the tree could reach 40’. 

The tree produces round, stem-clasping, bluish-green juvenile leaves that mature to broad, lanceolate adult leaves. Elongated leaves and stems take on burgundy and purples in fall and winter. The attractive bark is a striking smooth powdery-white that sheds to reveal colorful yellow, grey, and orange patches. The bark is used by the Aborigines for face paint. It is often classified as its own species, E. elliptica. This species is native of New South Wales (Tomalla area) and Queensland.
