Smaller Eucalypts for Planting in Australia
Taller Eucalypts for Planting in Australia
by Dean Nicolle (published 2016)
Together, these two books treat 164 eucalypt species suited for growing in Australia. Many of these species are already commonly grown and seen in gardens, streets, parks and farms throughout Australia, while others are rarely planted but have vast potential for much wider use, both in the urban landscape and in rural areas.
For each of the species included in the books, a double-page provides the following information:
Height graph indicating its usual and maximum height
Images of cultivated plants with an estimation of their age
Images of the bark, foliage, buds, flowers and fruits
Map of Australia indicating its natural and planted distribution
Why plant me? overview
Meaning and origin of the name
Features of the species, including flowering times
Natural distribution and habitat
Cultivation and uses
A table indicating environmental preferences and tolerances
Researched, designed and written for anyone interested in the identification, selection, growing, management, and appreciation of eucalypts in gardens, streets, parks, and on farms.
