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.

The demand for Eucalyptus trees has risen significantly over the past few years. This is a fun tree that does a lot. We recommend ordering soon while supplies are still available.

It's Easy to Plant your Eucalyptus Tree

Specific Directions for Eucalyptus Tree
Place your Eucalyptus Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Eucalyptus Trees prefer full sunlight, but can tolerate shade. South facing areas receive the most direct sunlight. For a privacy screen plant your Eucalyptus Trees about 5 feet apart. Make sure that your tree doesn't sit in an low area of your yard that collects standing water.

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.

Eucalyptus Trees often don't require fertilizer. If you choose to fertilize your tree use a slow release fertilizer once in the Spring or fall that's low in phosphorous. 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.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Eucalyptus Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Eucalyptus Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Eucalyptus Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Amazing trees- also dangerous. The awesome smell comes with a risk. The leaves contain oil- oils that are flammable. I found this out when burning brush. The dried leaves/twigs go up like gasoline. Rate of growth is true. I ordered two trees about three years ago. They are now bigger than the very $$$ oak trees that I had to plant with a back hoe.

I am very happy with my eucalyptus tree purchase, it survived a hot weather 109 degrees, it survived the deer! They tried to eat it, and it is standing so tall and beautiful in just one year in spite of all the adversities. I highly recommend this Eucalyptus Tree to anyone

We planted our Eucalyptus Tree in the front yard and in one year it has doubled in size. Not sure if it will grow to look like the one in the picture but it is a nice tree and as it gets large will smell nice on breezy day. I have cut a few branches off and put them in the house and months later they still have a scent to them.

I can't keep my eyes off this tree. It is so beautiful. Initially I thought that it was dead but it is growing and so healty looking now. Each time I walk outside, I have to walk over and take a look. I love unique tree and would so love to have another one of these on the opposite side of the yard but my job shut down and I don't have the funds to purchase another but this tree is every thing that you said and more. Thank you so much for being the provider. Hopefully at some point in time, I will be able to buy a second one. Thank you so much. By the way it has grown at least 2 additional feet since it was planted

Very unique tree
My wife and I love this little tree, It's very unique and perfect for south Texas. Not sure why none of the local nurseries, Lowe's, or Home Depot do not sell these trees. I have had it for 4 weeks and it's already sprouting new leaves. Still no aroma which I was looking forward to....I wonder why?

How much is the Eucalyptus Tree? I do not know what Zone I am in for being NW Iowa.
A shopper on Jun 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Eucalyptus tree varies in price depending on availability and size. It's currently on back order and our sales often change every 3 to 4 days, so I can't give you a good price estimate currently. NW Iowa is in zone 5, but some of it is in zone 4.
How does this tree tolerate very moist soil? This is not a marsh area or one where water is standing. However there are times in spring when the ground is spongy and soft. I also like the tulip popular and the sweet bay magnolia. The idea of year round green is appealing. My zip is 74012. Please offer some suggestions.
A shopper on Jul 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Eucalyptus Tree doesn't like moist soil or being over watered. Watering is a key step in removing any pests which may also share the plants desire to stay warm and dry. Try not to over water, these plants come from a dry desert and prefer to live as such, but do well in our warm temperature. Eucalyptus trees, which normally do well without irrigation, might appreciate occasional deep irrigation through summer.
How can I buy the Eucalyptus seeds?
tin h on Jun 12, 2014

I looked at your zonal map and it looks like you are in zone 8 for plant hardiness. If you planted the end of September you might be ok but early spring would probably be safer.
Can Eucalyptus be planted close to the house or will the roots damage the foundation?
Odette L on Jun 25, 2015

Kristie S on Oct 14, 2014

When is the best time to plant this tree?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Best to get the Eucalyptus in the ground in the early fall or early spring. Summer planting is good as well, as long as you can water as needed.
I live near a landfill with a slight unpleasant smell (only on warm days when wind is blowing the right direction). Would a few of these between my home and the landfill alleviate some of the smell? Other suggestions?
brandon on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think that the best smelling live trees are the fast growing arborvitae.Then plant lavender,oregano,catmint and bee balm where you sit outside and they will mask some of the aromas.Coneflowers and some marigolds are very fragrant too.

carole C on Apr 14, 2015
Is it too late to plant now? I live in Raleigh area of north caroina
Vicky H on Sep 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine in early November in Tuscaloosa, AL (I think the lows were in the high 40s/low 50s at the time). It's done really well since then - I've done nothing with it since planting, and it's grown to about eight ft tall in two years.
Is this tree salt tolerant Will it thrive in the Fla Keys?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm in Broward county, about 5 miles west of the beach. My eucalyptus tree was 2' tall it's now almost 8'. It grew 2 main trunks and I have them wired to a stake ti try to keep it straight. I've trimmed the shoots lower than 6' and so far the tree is doing well.
I may have been expecting more from it as far as mosquito control but maybe it's still too soon and not big enough.
Will this tree do ok in an enclosed back porch slightly heated through the winter months in a pot? I thought maybe I could do this the first year until it got a little bigger before transplanting to its permanent home outside? We have brutal north winds in western Oklahoma and it can get really cold.
Lori D on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Eucalyptus cinerea trees (Silver Dollar Gum Trees) that we sell are only hardy to zone 8 and Oklahoma's warmest areas are zone 7 on the USDA map. The tree probably will not survive your winters if planted outdoors, but you can certainly grow it in a large pot and transfer it indoors in the winter. In fact, it is quite a popular choice for a potted plant, with its waxy, rounded blue-green leaves and spicy scent.
will this tree survive and grow outdoors, year round, in Southern Michigan?
RoseMarie M on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe probably not. The winters are too long, too cold. However, you know you can not so "NO" to any true gardener. If you keep it in a pot and bring it in when the weather is cold, it may do well as an ornamental.
I live in Cache Creek BC and get conflicting Zones. We get to -30 for a day or 2 sometimes. Winters are short and average -10. Would this grow outside?
Emmi D on May 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would seriously whether or not this species would ever be able to survive your coldest temps. I am in zone 5 which is not much better than yours and I would never try to carry it through a winter here in Vermont. Have you thought of placing it in a container and bringing it into a cool basement for winter? This also is probably not a viable solution if the tree grows as fast as claimed. Good luck. tc

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Trees are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Tree before pruning Tree after pruning Rose before pruning Rose after pruning
Maple Tree before pruning Maple Tree after pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose before pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose after pruning

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
