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

  • 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.

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

be careful of this tree
many ppl do not know about the damage this tree cause to the nearby trees/ plants. Nothing will survive next to this tree b/c this is a very thirsty tree, need extraordinary amount of water with shallow root system. This often leaves nothing for nearby plants to take up. As the shallow root system expands, it invades the habitat of other species and can take over an area of the yard. Once it has established, it can be extremely difficult to eradicate a eucalyptus tree from your yard, because when the tree is cut down it undergoes mass-sprouting from the base and the root system and may reestablish growth.

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?

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Eucalyptus Tree


Eucalyptus Tree Planting Diretions 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.

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.

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.

I live in central Florida. We want to plant this as a memorial for my mother. It gets good sunlight but not full sun. Also can you prune it so it does not get past about 25 feet?
Gretchen M on Feb 23, 2016
Best Answer: If it gets good sunlight, my experience is that it will be fine. Eucalyptus trees grow pretty fast. You will have to prune it to prevent it from getting out of hand. Don't plant near your house.The limbs can be used as dried foliage indoors in vases with fresh or dried flowers.

Will 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.


Trimming & Pruning

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


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.
