Special Attributes

Eucalyptus nicholii "Angus" is a more cold hardy selection of the Willow Leaf Peppermint Eucalyptus producing a large, rather broad-spreading, gracefully weeping, fine-leafed evergreen tree. The narrow elongated leaves are similar in appearance to those of the weeping willow tree, providing a very soft look. Juvenile foliage is hints of red maturing to blue-green. The leaves have a fresh peppermint scent and are a stand out in any arrangement. The attractive bark of the tree is fibrous brown with orange highlights. At maturity Angus should reach about 30-50 feet tall and 20-30 feet wide, depending on local climate and pruning. Size is easy to control and this tree responds well to pruning. 'Angus' handles dry soil, is highly disease resistant, has formidably heat and drought tolerance, and has also proven to be more cold hardy than the species in our trials.


Cold Hardiness

In Atlanta, GA Trials, eight Angus Eucalytpus trees reached 50' in height in ten years. In Western, NC, 10 mos. old trees that froze to the ground at -10 degrees F are growing vigorously from their base. Mature trees can suffer partial defoliation at 6 degrees. Most will respond within two years.




Landscape Uses

A fast grower to 40 feet tall and 20 feet wide or more, the Angus Eucalyptus tree is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings or as a privacy screen in landscape borders. It is very effective to frame in the corners of tall hhomes and other buildings. Very nice as a focal point near swimming pools, decks, patios and other outdoor living spaces. 

Suggested Spacing:  20 feet for privacy screen;  40 feet or more for space between trees
