Eucalyptus parviflora offers a moderate size which allows it to be exploited in small gardens. Indeed it reaches a maximum height of 12 meters, it supports all types of soils even poor, calcareous and poorly drained soils. In addition, it resists very well to cold even in very humid and snowy climates. Like eucalyptus gunnii, it also tolerates cool, low-sun summers.
Its bark peels in very long ribbons revealing a trunk and smooth branches of variable color, from gray to light brown through mahogany tones. The twigs have a slightly purple tone.
The leaves are glaucous green, opposite, oval and slightly pointed. The foliage of this gum tree is used by florists in the composition of bouquets.
