Full description and specifications

Eucalyptus cinerea - spectacular endemic variety from Australia, which impresses with its silver-blue foliage. It is an easy-to-grow, compact, well-branched shrub, green all year round, with fast development and high resistance to low temperatures.

Eucalyptus is naturally a good repellent for flies and mosquitoes, which is why it is often grown on terraces or in gardens. Due to its resistance, it is also used as a forest curtain, to cover fences, etc.

The foliage is frequently used in flower arrangements and bouquets, due to its specific appearance and fragrance - the plants are cut several times a year, and then they branch out quickly. In some countries, this variety is grown and massively exploited for its hard wood that can be used in construction, for furniture or as fuel. The sap extracted from this tree is a good natural insecticide and repellent, also having an antiseptic effect - although it is toxic when ingested, it is a frequently found component in insecticides, phytosanitary treatments, deodorants, wound treatment creams.

Other known names: Silver Dollar, Argyle Apple

It does not require special soil and is resistant to diseases and pests, being naturally considered "pest free". It withstands temperatures up to -18 °C, without the need for winter protection. In case of a stronger frost, the leaves fall, but the plant recovers in the next growing season.

Height with pots included: approx. 30-40 cm

The appearance of the leaves can vary from one specimen to another - eucalyptus leaves change as they mature. In the warm season, these plants can arrive at their destination with damaged foliage (dry tips/leaves) - this aspect is due to transport and represents only an aesthetic defect.

Recommendation : We recommend that you plant the eucalyptus in the garden or in large pots, placed outside during the summer. It is an outdoor plant and does not behave well in the long term in small pots. Do not expose the plant to strong sunlight before planting.

The transport pots in which the plants come are fragile and can break during handling and transport.
