Fast-Growing and Aromatic Eucalyptus
From its incredible aroma to its fast growth and eye-catching texture, Baby Blue Eucalyptus is second to none. In fact, it grows up to 6 feet each year, providing unmatched fragrance and iconic good looks that are truly delightful.
This is one of the most fragrant eucalyptus plants available. Some other varieties are faint or have no smell at all, but this one offers fragrance without fail, like perfume for your garden and indoor spaces. Plus, its individual leaves are saucer-like and stiff with a gorgeous blue hue, setting it apart from other types of eucalyptus.
What's more is that this variety is evergreen, so you'll get year-round color, texture and scent. It also makes a great cut flower for indoor arrangements, and it keeps well when dried, so you can enjoy it long after it's been cut.
Baby Blue Eucalyptus also offers natural flea and tick protection, and its pungent odor deters many pests from your garden, so plant it generously if you're trying to get rid of pesky critters. It's also deer resistant as an added benefit.
Order your own Baby Blue Eucalyptus to enjoy all of its beauty and many attractive qualities!
Please note: This variety is toxic to dogs and cats, so keep it out of reach from furry friends!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: You’ll want a full sun area that drains well and is far from other competing plants.
Dig your hole twice the width of the root ball, and just as deep. Hold the tree upright to where the tip of the root crown is level with the soil surface. Gently backfill the hole (be delicate with the roots). When the hole is partially filled, soak the soil, let it settle, then finish backfilling to the top of the root ball. Repeat several times until full, watering between layers.
If you're planting for indoor growth, select the appropriate pot for your new tree. Go up one or two pot sizes from your plant's shipped container. Use organic soil, place your plant, and then find a sunny spot indoors.
2. Watering: Using your index finger is a good way to tell if the tree is ready for another drink of water or not. Stick your finger into the soil near the tree, about 2 or 3 inches down, and if it still feels moistened, leave it be. If it’s dry and sandy to the touch, give it a good watering.
3. Fertilizing: Potted Eucalyptus may benefit from a slow-release fertilizer once every spring. A basic 10-10-10 formula works well.
4. Pruning: Eucalyptus responds well to pruning but is not necessary for the first two seasons. When you're ready to prune, do so in the heat of summer and be sure to remove dead branches. If your eucalyptus is planted in a hedge, we recommend regular pruning to maintain shape and size; otherwise, the plants can tend to sprawl.
