This delicate, weeping tree is best planted in a group. I have them planted with only 1m spacing, and they are spectacular.

Eucalyptus caesia is drought hardy, and needs good drainage (mine are growing largely in sand).

They tend to fall over, as they can be top heavy. They look great if pruned though, and will grow from lignotuber if pruned just above the ground.
