Planting Position and Soil Preference
How to Use
Beware of nurseries selling trees labelled as just E camphora - there are two subspecies. E camphora subsp. camphora grows to 10m.
E camphora subsp humeana quickly reached 10m but can creep up to 20m over a period of decades, given optimum growing conditions. The mature tree photographs shows the parents of our current stock. At 40 years old they are around 11m tall.
Eucalyptus camphora subsp humeana is also known as the broad-leaved sallee (corruption of Sallow or Willow) and also the Mountain Swamp gum. Its native environment is the swampy/marshy valley bottoms of New South Wales and Southern Victoria in Australia
This is a great evergreen tree for SUDs work as it can tolerate intermittent and prolonged periods of deep flooding.
