The lemon scent of this tree is so strong it's noticeable just by standing beside the tree. Crush the leaves and the lemon scent is intense, this tree is used in the production of Citronellal Oil. The scent makes this a good choice for repelling insects or an ingredient in potpourri.

Technically named ' Corymbia citiriodora'

IMPORTANT: This is the least hardy tree we grow. It's a subtropical tree that will only withstand short periods of slight frosts. In the UK we would expect most of these to be kept in a conservatory during the winter, it can survive outside if planted in a sheltered and sunny spot. Trees that have died back in the winter have been known to come back.
