Lemon Squash™ Corymbia is a bushier, significantly more compact growing form of the popular and widely grown Corymbia citriodora, or better known as the Lemon Scented Gum.
This dwarf sized tree will form a dense canopy with a multi-stemmed trunk. The beauty of Lemon Squash™ Corymbia is that it does not have the propensity to drop limbs and make a nuisance of its self like the much taller common form can. It features the smooth grey bark and lovely lemon scented foliage when crushed that the species is renowned for.
