Native to Tasmania. Growing in the mountainous inland regions, this Eucalyptus isn’t found on the Australian mainland. The leaves are similar to those of Gunnii though this isn’t generally a Eucalyptus grown for its foliage, which is my opinion a shame, as especially during the cold winter months the colour is stunning.
Archeri matures to around 12m, making it ideal for smaller gardens. It also responds well to pruning, making it suitable for hedging. If pruned it will retain its juvenile leaves which are oval shaped and a deep turquoise colour.
