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.

Not what was pictured

I received a plant about 4 ft tall ,bare stalk with eucalyptus branches at the top. More like a tree. The first one sent shriveled in about 2 days. I called and they sent a new one right away. Had it 3 days . No shriveling yet.

Beautiful but struggling

The tree arrived and is an impressive height but leaves are browning. I've replanted and found that it was incredibly root bound. Tried to loosen as much as I could without damaging. Still seems to be struggling though.

Eucalyptus tree

Absolutely beautiful tree...

Good, but a bit damaged from travel

These trees were taller than expected, around 4 ft, which is great. I bought three of these. Unfortunately, one of them seems to be damaged beyond repair from the shock of the journey-- the leaves are all extremely brittle and turning grey/brown. One is in great condition with just a little bit of brown leaves from the shipping. The other is a bit more damaged, but I think it should survive. Two of the three are crooked in their pots from the shipping, but I should be able to straighten them out when I actually pot them. I want to make sure they are going to survive before I pot them, as it will be a bit of a chore.

What a beauty!
