Eucalyptus Tree

Fast Growing... Cold Hardy... Wonderfully Aromatic!


The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.

  •  Incredibly aromatic
  •  Grows up to 6 ft. per year!
  •  Drought tolerant

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.

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.

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.

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.

How would this tree do in Southern Utah, zone 8? It's very hot and dry in the summer (110+ degrees F in July), but the winters can dip into the 20's for a few weeks. Also, would the roots be invasive for a pool located about 20 feet away?
C S on Jul 28, 2014
Best Answer: The $90-$110 Eucalyptus tree did not make it. Arrived with not much root system at all. Couple hairs growing out of bottom stalk branch. Looked like you tried to graph a branch or something. Since the delivery driver was gone I lost the ability to return it after opening.

Maybe try a Royal Empress tree - I'm in middle Georgia. Very hot in July & August 90-100 temps daily average with some years summer drought. Not much of winter here but may freeze for a week or two, Branches spread up and outward - very large leaves may fall into pool. Tree is like large umbrella shading everything under.

Will my Trees and Shrubs 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.

Potted Tree Dormant Tree Bare Root Tree
Late spring to early fall
trees are shipped potted
Some dormant trees
prefer to be potted
Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs 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.
