Silver Drop Eucalyptus Plants

'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!

4 of 5 eucalyptus June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Michelle Bartee from Arkansas City, KS United States  
This guy was a little rough looking when it came. Everything was packed beautifully and in great shape except for a lot of dried up leaves on this. I planted it as recommended and am waiting to see if it will pull out of it. To be continued...
