Eucalyptus papuana-Ghost Gum 

Growing to about 40 feet tall by 25 feet wide, this tree has powdery white trunks, which contrast nicely with its large, light green leaves. This species has a semi-weeping growth habit, and produces very little litter. The Arizona Department of Transportation has liked its performance on older freeway rights-of-way, and continues to specify it on new projects. It is hardy to 20F. USDA Zone 9.
