Why Eucalyptus Plants?
From its incredible aroma to its fast, easy growth, the Eucalyptus Plant is second to none. In fact, it grows up to 6 feet each year, providing unmatched fragrance and iconic good looks that are unmatched.
This is one of the most fragrant Eucalyptus Plants available. Some other varieties are faint or have no smell at all...but this Eucalyptus offers fragrance without fail, like perfume for your garden or indoor spaces. Plus, because it's drought-tolerant and thrives indoors or out, you can grow it anywhere. You're not limited by location when it comes to this plant.
You have likely smelled its leaves in flower arrangements or in potpourri. The dusty blue-green leaves of this Eucalyptus are refreshingly aromatic - so much so that you'll enjoy walking outside just to smell it and look at it.
Also known as the Gum Tree, this plant's 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.
And it offers natural flea and tick protection. Put some leaves under your pet's bed or in areas where they like to sleep.

Purchased two over two and half years, planted one in the fall and waited a year to try and get it to take, finally gave up on it and bought another that I planted in the Spring - both dead! I followed all instructions given and can grow other beautiful trees from this company with great success - just not this one for some reason. I’m in zone 7.
the plant arrived on time and in good humor. It is growing well in the pot. "Gracie" is happy.....putting out new growth and never a brown leaf. Thanks much for sharing her with us! I am having trouble with a locally purchased frangipangi......it has "rust" and I keep removing the leaves as the orange powder appears.....I am afraid about too mant leaves.........any suggestions? firstname.lastname@example.org
I babied it but it died!!!! >:( . honestly don't know what i did wrong! Im typically a good gardener! I even kept it inside the garage after receiving it so i wouldn't go into shock but it died anyway! MY FAULT!
It's a beautiful tree and super fast growing. I have had mine around 4 yrs now. It smells wonderful and I love to take cuttings for flower arrangements. I even used cuttings to add to our daughter in-laws wedding flowers. This tree was 4ft tall when I got and now it towers over our second floor deck. The only issue has been that the trunk has become crooked. The instructions should tell you to stake it.
What a delight this tree is. Already twice its original size. I love the texture contrast the leaves give to my existing garden.
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 are ready to prune, be sure to remove dead branches. Pruning is recommended in the heat of summer.
