Product Details

Are you looking for a unique, evergreen tree that will really make your landscape stand out?!  How about one that has an amazing, fresh scent?  Look no further than the Silver Dollar Eucalyptus.

This fast growing tree has fragrant blue-green, rounded leaves and reddish-brown, peeling bark.  With a mature height up to 40 feet and width up to 20-30 feet, with enough space this tree can grow fairly large.  However, it will maintain a smaller size if it has less space to grow.  Some even grow this tree in containers to keep a manageable specimen or move indoors in winter.

Beyond its good looks, this Eucalyptus has a clean, menthol-like scent.  This scent comes from an oil produced within the leaves.  Not only does this scented oil relax you, it repels insects including mosquitos and fleas!  Simply trim off some branches and fill your home with this lovely scent and attractive foliage.  You can even dry these cuttings for an even longer lasting arrangement or to give as gifts throughout the year!

Reward yourself with the soothing scent of the Silver Dollar Eucalyptus today!

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
