Eucalyptus staigeriana

Lemon scented ironbark

 

Description: There are only 3 species that have the lemon scented foliage.  Corymbia citriodora, Corymbia maculata and Eucalyptus staigeriana.  All are high in the oil content and are grown primarily for the oil extraction.  I have no information as to how big this grows, but is probably very similar to the Corymbia citriodora details.

Culture: Sun, acid pH soils, well drained sandy loam or gravels.

Uses: Aromatherapy, ornamental plantings.
