Also called florist silver dollar, 'Baby Blue' is a florist's staple. Long stems with rounded leaves in shades of dusty green, sometimes with purple highlights are excellent for a bouquet filler, wreath base, and are very sturdy when dried. With heady, menthol-like fragrance, it is widely used in aromatherapy, potpourri, as a pest deterrent, and much more. Perennial in USDA zones 9–11; also grown as an annual. As an annual, plants reach about 24"–48", but it can become a 35'-tall tree over time where perennial. Drought tolerant once established, heat tolerant, and rarely bothered by pests. Deer resistant.

Very few seeds

I was really excited to plant these, however ,I opened the tiny seed packet and there was hardly any seeds inside. I counted less than 10 seeds. Super disappointing.

Fast germination and able to get all seeds to grow. Used indoor humidity cover under grow light then transplanted 5 into air-pot and the rest into 3" container all still growing well.

I've tried several sources of eucalyptus seeds and have had mixed results. Almost ALL of these seeds sprouted and I'm so thrilled! Thank you!
