Lemon Squash™ Corymbia citriodora ‘COR81’
- Bushy, compact growth habit
- Dwarf tree with lemon scented foliage
- Great for street plantings and small home gardens
Description: A bushier, significantly more compact growing form of the popular and widely grown Corymbia citriodora, or better know as the Lemon Scented Gum. This dwarf sized tree will form a dense canopy with a multi-stemmed trunk. The beauty of Lemon Squash™ Corymbia is that it does not have the propensity to drop limbs and make a nuisance of its self like the much taller common form can. It features the smooth grey bark and lovely lemon scented foliage when crushed that the species is renowned for.
Size: Approximately 4-6m high x 4-6m wide.
Planting Density: 1 plant per 2-6m², 1 plant per 6-8 linear metres.
Uses: Ideal for street planting, parks, ovals and home gardens.
Position: Sandy loam to light clay soil types. Lemon Squash™ Corymbia is drought tolerant and prefers full sun positions.
Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Lemon Squash™ Corymbia will respond well to pruning and will need protection from frost when young.
