Eucalyptus Citriodora "Lemon Eucalytpus)
While technically a tree, this very aromatic perennial can be grown in pots to restrict its height. It smells very strongly like citronella and is often used in citronella candles for this reason. Grow it outdoors in a sunny warm spot or indoors as a pot plant and it will reward you by keeping mosquitos at bay – it also likes to be pruned to it’s easy to keep it in shape.
Over-winter in a cool, frost-free place.
Ultimate Height & Spread: 27 x 18m
9cm Pot supplied.
