What's Blooming this Week?

The Gungurru, Eucalyptus caesia "Silver Princess",  is a Western Australian mallee that thrives in the Mudgee climate.

Our grove of these has been in flower right through winter, much to the delight of the honeyeaters.

The mallees, small multi-trunked trees, are some of the most spectacular of the flowering "gumtrees". Given the success of this species we are now planning to expand and diversify our collection.  A new page on our website will list species that we believe worth trying.  To see The Mallee Grove page click here


  1. Very beautiful flower, unknowned in France!Our Eucalyptus doesn't make flowers, they just smell so good!

  2. Perhaps you could try to find one to plant in France? For you I am sure it will make the flowers, Joelle.

  3. Yes maybe when I'll be in my future home on my island where climat is better for this kind of plant! here, Pyrenees climate is too cold in winter!
