Description / Eucalyptus 'Baby Blue' Spiral Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus 'Baby Blue' Spiral Eucalyptus is a small evergreen tree or sprawling shrub, grown for its lovely bushy, spreading habit and florist-quality foliage, which remains round and silvery blue from the juvenile stage to full maturity. Both foliage and stems have a strong eucalyptus scent and are covered in a waxy powder, which makes them long lasting when cut. In winter and spring, the tree blooms in white flowers. Highly popular with florists, the boughs are harvestable for foliage decoration or for additions to floral arrangements.

A Eucalyptus pulverulenta, commonly called silver-leaved mountain gum, 'Baby Blue' has a compact habit and a slow growth rate, making it perfect for small garden spaces. It's also a great container plant.

Eucalyptus is most at home in Mediterranean climates. It is an easy-grow, easy-care plant that grows best in a sunny location with average to moderately fertile, moist, well-draining soil having a neutral to mildly acidic pH. The plant is drought tolerant and deer resistant.
