STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

After planting, mulch your Silver Dollar Eucalyptus creating a 3-4 inch layer that does not touch the tree's bark. Water at least once a week for the first two years, supplying 5-20 gallons of water per week. Prune in early spring.

Silver Dollar Eucalyptus

We were extremely pleased with the appearance of the eucalyptus when it arrived. Larger than expected and healthy looking! Packing was sturdy and it arrived with no damage which was a relief. We planted it the very next day, full west sun. I really hope it thrives because it is such a beautiful thing---and smells heavenly! Thank you


Eucalyptus - Silver Dollar


In February (2019) I purchased the Silver Dollar Eucalyptus to grow my own greenery filler for my son's memorial flower arrangements. The tree arrived just as the photos on the website and we planted it in a very large pot until the location we designated was ready. It has been in the pot since February and grown so well that last night, I was able to cut enough greenery from this little tree to lightly fill a large arrangement with lovely stems! I am so very happy with this purchase and highly recommend it! The plant arrived packed VERY WELL and hydrated perfectly. Since purchasing the Silver Dollar Eucalyptus, I have purchased two maple trees and both have been growing like crazy as well!
