Eucalyptus dalrympleana is a really beautiful tree with pale grey to white mottled bark turning a spectacular pink and grey late summer.; At minus 15°C in an exposed position this tree appears very happy. The sight of a full grown tree covered with hard frost in mid winter or covered with snow white blossom in spring makes it one of my favourites (the bees love it too!). The blue/grey adult leaves are long and scythe like, very often showing red tints on the old leaves - but again beware, this is a fast and large growing tree although the canopy is thin and graceful.
