Eucalyptus cladocalyx 'Vintage Red' is a great landscape tree with deep red foliage that matures to purple grey. It is a proven performer for cool to temperate areas. The stems start rich dark red to near black, which peels to reveal smooth grey bark. It grows to around 8 metres tall and 4 metres wide, but can be pruned down to 2-4 metres high if needed. It responds well to pruning, producing denser foliage and a shrub-like habit. The foliage can be used for cut flower bunches. Suits sandy loam to well drained clay soil, and full to part shade. Tolerates frost and drought. Resistant to myrtle rust.
