Meaning of name:
Eucalyptus is from Greek: eu, well + calyptos, covered. A reference to the well-covered cap covering the developing flowers
caesia is from Latin: caesius, bluish-grey. A reference to the silver coloured powder that covers the branches, flower buds and fruit
Eucalyptus caesia is rare and endangered in the wild, and found only on a few granite outcrops in the central wheatbelt of Western Australia. It is however a popular cultivar called ‘Silver Princess’, which was registered in 1975.
There are two subspecies:
- Eucalyptus caesia subsp. caesia, about 6m to 9m (20 to 30 feet) tall
- Eucalyptus caesia subsp. magna, up to 15m (49 feet) tall
The flowers are large, from 40mm to 50mm (1.6 to 2 inches) in diameter, and while usually red-pink in colour, a white type is also known. The tree has a weeping habit and flowers from winter to spring.
