Noteworthy Characteristics

Nicknamed 'Bonza' meaning "great" in its home in the coldest regions of Australia.  This (zone 6b and above) is a small to medium, patient growing Eucalyptus tree that should be a featured ornamental in your landscape.  Semi-pendulous evergreen leaves and stems take on distinctive burgundy highlights. Bonza produces white flowers in the summer. The trunk is artistically contorted; its bark is smooth with patterned white and grey patches. Size is easy to control and the tree responds well to pruning. All grown up, Bonza' can reach 40’. Bonza adapts well to any soil condition, is disease resistant, and long-lived.  'Bonza' grows all over the alpine regions of Eastern Australia and is highly rated for its cold hardiness.
