Florist Silver Dollar 'Baby Blue', Silver-Leaved Mountain Gum 'Baby Blue', Powdered Gum 'Baby Blue', Silver Mountain Gum 'Baby Blue'


Incredibly popular amongst florists, Eucalyptus pulverulenta 'Baby Blue' (Florist Silver Dollar) is a small evergreen tree or sprawling shrub of open, spreading habit adorned with a ravishing foliage of blue-gray rounded leaves. Unlike many Eucalyptus, it retains its juvenile rounded foliage into maturity. Highly scented, the leaves and stems are covered in a white waxy powder making them last a long time in a vase. In the fall and spring, abundant clusters of creamy-white flowers are borne amongst the foliage. Versatile, this Eucalyptus features a very interesting architecture and makes a lovely specimen tree for the smaller garden. Excellent for flower arrangements.

  • Grows up to 12-30 ft. tall (3-9 m) and 12-20 ft. wide (3-6 m). Very prunable, so can be kept under control easily
  • Performs best in full sun in average to moderately fertile, slightly acidic soil that does not dry out. Protect from cold, drying winds. Drought resistant.
  • Easy to grow, easy to care for. Dear resistant.
  • Watch for eucalyptus sucker, silver leaf and oedema.
  • Propagate by seed in spring or summer.
