Eucalyptus pulverulenta ‘Baby Blue’

Description

The bluish-grey kabob-style foliage makes this Eucalyptus popular in flower arrangements. In the garden it is a sprawling shrub that can reach 25 feet tall. Occasional pruning is recommended to direct the plant’s form and to encourage the decorative new foliage. Highly scented, the leaves and stems are covered in a white waxy powder making them last a long time in a vase. Produces creamy-white flowers in the fall and spring. Hardy to about 15 to 20 degrees F. Photo courtesy of Gardenia.
