Eucalyptus albida, commonly known as the White Leaved Mallee or Rustle Gum occurs naturally in scattered populations in the south and south west of Western Australia.  Normally reaching approximately 4m, it can be grown as a single-trunked specimen or multi-trunked and takes well to coppicing for production of the attractive juvenile foliage. 

 

Juvenile foliage is sessile, opposite and ovate in an attractive glaucous almost white colour and much sought after by the floristry trade, the adult foliage is very glossy green to dark green light green, narrow lanceolate to lanceolate.  Bark is smooth, white or greenish grey. 

 

Flower colour is from white to cream with the flowers appearing in clusters along the slender branches.

It grows at a medium rate and is drought tolerant and particularly suited to dry conditions in acid, degraded gravelly or sandy soil.  Its small size, graceful form and attractive foliage make it a useful ornamental with the juvenile foliage being a particular feature.  There is potential to manage this tree as a coppice, producing multi-stems of juvenile foliage for the floristry trade.
