Snow Gum (Pr Pkt) ■●җ җ җ
Eucalyptus niphophila is known as the snow gum because of its native habitat above the mountain snow lines. The tree has a definite white bloom to the leaves and the grey white bark is augmented by the white flower clusters produced in the spring, as shown in the photograph. The leaves are of a heavier make up than other species, able to stand severe frosts. This is one of the hardiest and most attractive species to grow although slower growing than some.
