Eucalyptus utilis - Coastal Moort - 50 Seeds


Myrtaceae - No shipment to Western Australia or Tasmania


Eucalyptus utilis, commonly known as Coastal Moort is a non-lignotuberous and is a relatively short-lived Eucalypt, growing up to 8m tall.  Natural populations grow in the vicinity of low-lying areas on alkaline sands, sandy clays or sandy loams, derived from limestone or alluvia.  Natural occurrences of this species are restricted to coastal and sub-coastal parts of southern Western Australia, including offshore islands near Esperance.


Bark is smooth throughout, grey to grey-green over coppery to orange and flowers are creamy white.


Coastal Moort is a fast growing, small tree which under cultivation it develops a spreading and densely foliaged crown.  The relatively small stature of this species makes it an ideal urban shade or amenity tree in areas where large trees pose problems and grows extremely well on near coastal sites that have alkaline, sandy soils.  On favourable sites it establishes rapidly and has excellent potential to provide a windbreak or shelterbelt for stock on rural properties, particularly in areas where strong coastal winds are prevalent.  It is also considered salt tolerant.

It has some potential farm use - as an excellent windbreak, good for fence posts, good ornamental attributes, shelterbelt or shade for stock.


Specialty products - flowers produce nectar for honey production, pollen has value for apiculture.
Urban use - good as an ornamental or amenity plant, ideal maintenance free street tree or suitable as a screen or hedge.


Wildlife value - flowers are especially attractive to birds.
Wood products - high quality fuelwood, industrial charcoal and posts.
