Eucryphia lucida 'Spring Glow'

Variegated Tasmanian Leatherwood

Evergreen Shrub, Tree

This variegated shrub/tree for mild climates has small, finely-textured leaves and grows in the highly useful, upright/columnar form. To 12' tall and narrow. Use singularly as an accent or group together to form a hedge-like screen. White flowers appear in summer, but are not very showy as they're hard to see next to the foliage. A useful and beautiful plant for temperate gardens. Hardy to 5°F so best in a protected location. If growing in a container, take care to protect from freezing.
