Silverdrop Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is one of our favorite foliage plants, we love the dusty silver leaves, the spicy fragrance, the geometric growth habit of the leaves, and the way all that structure coincides with a loose bushy plant shape. Silver Drop Eucalyptus is a beautiful foliage plant, native to Tasmania, and can be easily grown indoors. The sculptural branches are a modern shape for the garden or windowsill. The crisp, bright scent is soothing and the leaves are smooth and fleshy to the touch. Includes 3 young plants, each grown in a 2.5" diameter pot

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
