Description

Soft silver-blue color and unusual foliage

A treat indoors or out, this exquisite eucalyptus (familiarly known as silver dollar plant) is a study in color, fragrance, and texture. The round, very flat silvery blue leaves are held in pairs along stiff stems of the same color, giving the plant a very neat, layered look. Wonderfully scented, they last a long time. These boughs are fabulous as everlastings for indoor arrangements.

A native of Australia, silver dollar plant is at home in warm climates or indoors and can be pruned to desired height. Expect it to put on as much as 8 feet of height in a single season. And in the sunny garden, it grows rapidly but is not invasive. It will eventually reach 30 feet or more high, with a tall, slender silhouette that fits well in today's smaller gardens.

To dry, simply cut the stem at the desired height and hang it upside-down in a well-ventilated, dry, somewhat cool location. The 3- to 4-inch leaves, each pierced by the central stem, are magnificent over a long time, and unlike anything else in the garden or home.

Very long lived, this eucalyptus asks only for good potting soil refreshed annually and adequate water. The seed germinates in light, so lay it on top of the sponge in your Bio-Dome or atop the soil in a seed flat. You will love watching this tree take shape before your eyes.

Love your packs

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I came across a pack of old eucalyptus seeds from 2013. I decided to try them this year 2022. They grew great! Thanks for the foil packs. they give me a chance to grow all the seeds I bought in the past that I didn’t get around to growing and I have more experience and patience now.

Just planted these a week ago and have about a dozen sprouted already! I'm so excited for them. I'll update this review if they don't make it.

Eucalyptus: silver dollar plant.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I love this tree. I planted it from a seed not knowing it would make the tree that I saw on a garden show on TV in a California garden. It is wonderful. Even the neighbors enjoy it. Once established it took off and is growing tall. I know now years later that I could cut it back. So I will start over. My tree is about 25 years old. The seed has been hard to find.I am so excited to find it.
