Characteristics:
Habit
Medium-size tree, only 15 m tall here, 4-8 m wide, initially slenderly conical with leader, later ovoid crown; main branches upright, lateral twigs horizontal or vertically rising, sometime overhanging; slow to medium/fast-growing; only 20-40 cm a year usually; fast-growing on moist, nutritious soil, 60-90 cm a year
Crown
ovoid, narrow pyramidal ovoid, narrow pyramidal
Blossom
Inconspicuous
Leaves
Like maple leaves, but alternate; late shoots, mid to end of May; fresh green to medium-green; fiery violet-brown, crimson-red to orange and yellow in many hues from September on
Fruits
Long-stem balls like planes, persistent long into winter
Roots
Cordate; far-reaching, but with fleshy roots that have few branches, sensitive to soil compaction and dense soil volume; tolerate floods
Demands
Only full sun, avoids shade; needs warmth, sensitive to frost when young, later usually frost hardy, of limited use in urban areas, tolerating urban climates to a limited extent
Soil
Needs fresh to moist soil, also damp; only for acidic to neutral mineral substrates, sandy-loamy or loamy and nutritious, sensitive to salt. In moist habitats purple autumn colour, moisture may lead to frost damages due to lack of lignification
Note
The Redgum possesses the ability to regenerate and sprout from dormant buds after strong frosts. Spring planting recommended
