Genus: Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus, from Greek "eucalyptos" meaning well-covered, is a genus of more than 500 species of evergreen trees and shrubs, native to Australia, with often bifoliate, fragrant leaves. They develop surface roots and are therefore susceptible to wind load. What's more, surface roots pose are a potential hazard to adjacent structures.
They grow in full sun, in fertile, neutral or slightly acid, moderately moist soils. They can even grow in infertile or waterlogged soils. Provide frost-protection.
Plant alone or in rows or use in coastal planting.
Propagated by seeds.
