Eucalyptus Citriodora Lemon Bush
Light: Full Sun
Watering: Regular Watering until established in location then it's drought tolerant!
Soil: Well drain soil
Comments: This plant does get very large, to help contain the height you can grow it in a container. This plant needs full sun!!
This Australian native plant with grey green sword-shaped leaves and produces tiny white flowers. Even though, it has Eucalyptus as it's name...it's nothing like the Eucalyptus 'Silver Drop'. This plant has a powerful lemon scent stronger than most lemon herbs! Fun Fact when you use a Citronella candle, they actually use the oils from this plant for the smell!
In late summer/early fall the leaves and steams start to turn a beautiful red! The main use for this plant is ornamental and aromatic. Remember this a tree that can grow up to 60 feet if planted into the ground BUT this plant does great in a container, which will limited its growth to 36"!
