Eucalyptus pauciflora ssp niphophila - Alpine Snow Gum

Eucalyptus pauciflora ssp niphophila - Alpine Snow Gum

E. pauciflora is notable in so far as it's reported to be one of the most cold hardy species of all Eucalypts.

All pauciflora trees have oval bluish to glaucous juvenile leaves and glossy olive green adult leaves. The bark is smooth and shiny white, cream, green and grey which sheds in ribbons from the stems and branches. They tend to take a couple of years or so to establish i.e. growing slowly, before they grow faster. They also need good drainage as these are normally accustomed to rocky alpine conditions.

E. niphophlia differs from other subspecies of pauciflora in that it has more delicate buds and smaller leaves, and an smaller ultimate height.

Height (Unpruned): 7m
Rate of Growth: Slow 0.5-1m per year
Hardiness: *** -15°C +
Soil: Dry Tolerant, Lime Tolerant
Position: Wind Tolerant, Salt Tolerant
Special Interest: Ornamental Specimen

In recent years willow has been recognised as an excellent plant for use as a quick, easy and cost effective hedge or screen. It is now used in gardens, farms and by landowners as simple hedging and screening of unsightly objects & views. It's planted for use as windbreaks as the willow is tolerant of windy, exposed and even coastal conditions. And it's even used to create living structures such as domes, playhouses and tunnels

The ease in which these hedges and structures can be planted means even the non-green fingered among us can create a willow hedge without difficulty. The willow rods are inserted into the ground where they take root and start to grow.

The benefits to wildlife are also worth noting. Willow produces catkins very early in the year providing essential food for bees and insects. They also provide habitats for various birds and bees throughout the year - not to mention grazing fodder for passing deer.

We offer a range of products based around the Willow species Salix viminalis. We offer a range of ready-made kits with everything you need to create willow hedges and screens up to living domes and tunnels. We also supply willow whips and cuttings in bundles along with planting accessories.
