Myrtaceae - no shipment to Western Australia or Tasmania


Eucalyptus moorei, commonly known as Narrow Leaved Sally, or Little Sally, is native to moderately high country in New South Wales and grows in the Gibraltar Range in the State's north, in the Blue Mountains between 1000m and 1200m and at an altitude of 600 - 800m in the Budawang Ranges NE of Braidwood and further south in heathland.

It takes the form of either a small tree, seldom over 6m tall, or a multi-stemmed Mallee with smooth, blotched white, yellow, pink, brown, green or grey.  The leaves are 5 - 6cm long and are borne on a yellow petiole or leaf stalk, juvenile foliage and buds often exhibit a blue or glaucous tinge. 


Flowers are creamy white and in the months before flowering the combination of yellow petioles and dense clusters of yellow buds causes the tree to take on an overall warm glow.  The previous seasons capsules remain along the lower branches and are an attractive feature in themselves and has a long flowering period from Summer to Winter with a peak in late Autumn.

In its natural habitat on cold, wet sites suggesting tolerance of poor drainage the soils are shallow and low in nutrients, often forms thickets.  It is slow-growing for a Eucalyptus - in eight years they grew into shapely small trees, 4m tall.  With its attractive bark and buds and small size it is an ideal specimen for a suburban garden and is frost hardy.

It is easily propagated from seed.
