The Silver Dollar Eucalyptus, is a hardy, fast-growing evergreen tree with dusty blue-green leaves that will bring year-round color as well as an aromatic fragrance to your yard. Cut some of the branches off and you can bring the fresh scent into the house as a natural way to aromatize your home. The Silver Dollar gets its name from the shape and color of its leaves which are round and silvery. These leaves make the eucalyptus a great shade tree to keep you cool during the summer months. The Silver Dollar is drought tolerant and is hardy in Zones 8-11. It reaches a height of about 40 feet and a spread of 10-12 feet. When planting, avoid wet areas.

How to Plant
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.
I’m so happy with my eucalyptus plant! It is much taller than I was expecting and seems healthy. I feel like it was a great value for the price.
I am definitely going to be using plant me green again for my spring planting needs. Their plants are beautiful and their staff is great.
