Fast-Growing, Cold Hardy, and Aromatic
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.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Most big-box retailers sell their plants bare-root, giving you a lower chance of long-term success in your own garden...if they even sell Eucalyptus at all.
But when you order from Fast Growing Trees, we ensure that your Eucalyptus Plant is planted, grown, and meticulously nurtured from day one. We take the time to ensure your plant is well-rooted in nutrient-rich soil and delivered in a pot directly to your door.
The demand for Eucalyptus Plants has risen significantly over the past few years, so don't miss out on yours...order your own Eucalyptus Plant today!
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.
You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in

Customer Reviews & Photos
- eucalyptus plant
Love this tree!!!
The company was amazing! They shipped it carefully so it got here in pristine condition, they have great instructions that help you set it up, and they live up to their name! My tree seemed so small when I got it but it is already growing so much and it has been so fun to watch each leaf as it grows!
Eucalyptus polyanthemos tree
I was super surprised to actually find a eucalyptus tree for sale, and one that didn't cost over $80! The website was very easy to maneuver, and I was offered a discount for being a first time customer/email sign up so my wish list eucalyptus was even less expensive! It was shipped quickly. I expected to get a small tree but was pleasantly surprised to see a healthy, nicely-sized and well packaged plant! I would definitely buy from FGT again!
