This is the most fragrant Eucalyptus tree that we know of. Some other varieties are faint or have no smell at all. Not this one.
You have likely smelled its leaves in flower arrangements or in potpourie. The dusty blue-green leaves of this Eucalyptus are refreshingly aromatic. You'll enjoy walking outside just to smell it and look at it.
Attractive, peeling bark also carries the familiar fragrance for use in closets, drawers, or anywhere you want to add a fresh scent. No leaves to rake, it keeps its foliage year-round. Now you can enjoy color in the winter when all other trees are bare and brown.
Let it's fresh, clean aroma fill your home for days. It quickly grows back trimmed branches. Wonderful in flower arrangements, with its showy leaves.
Natural flea and tick protection. Put some leaves under your pet's bed or in areas where they like to sleep.
Your tree comes in a short bush-like form, but grows very quickly… up to 6 ft. per year! Tolerates drought and is cold tolerant down to zone 7b or in a protected zone 7a.
Grows indoors or out. If you live in the far north, grow it in a container and bring it inside for the winter. Your home will smell amazing.
A popular variety for home health remedies that treat a variety of respiratory and skin problems. My family uses eucalyptus and lemon grass to naturally repel ticks and mosquitoes when we go camping. It's a great alternative to Deet.

Your Eucalyptus Tree will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay, as long as it's well draining. Don't over water your tree. Eucalyptus Trees thrive in desert like conditions, and will only need water during prolonged periods of drought. Rain fall usually provides enough moisture for Eucalyptus Trees.

Every Spring white flowers will bloom on your tree, and small wooden cup shaped pods will grow. They're full of seeds and will drop around October. Eucalyptus Trees can shed their old bark year around.
