Silver Drop Eucalyptus Plants

Eucalyptus gunnii

'Silver Drop' Eucalyptus Plant, sometimes called a "Cider Gum", is a great aromatic herb and has a lovely, small, silvery leaf . These stems work well in any arrangement and can be used both fresh and dried. Add this great filler to your flower garden for its height as a background plant and its unusual but beautiful look. A more cold-hardy variety of the Eucalyptus plant, 'Silver Drop' has thrived on our farm here in zone 7, despite the harsh winters we sometimes get!

So healthy June 25, 2018
Reviewer: marilyn ackerman from Marianna, FL United States  
I had repotted this to have on my screened porch for awhile and finally put it in the ground.  It is so aromatic just brushing against it.  We have been having lots of rain lately and it looks great. I can't wait to watch it grow bigger.
