‘Bluey’ Named for its striking blue foliage
Hardiness Our trials have ‘Bluey’ hardy in zone 8A and above. Hardiness improves with age. A standout specimen tree!
Getting Started This Eucalyptus is adaptable to a wide variety of climates, but can struggle under high heat / high humidity conditions. Can easily be grown as a tall shrub or small tree.
Size Easy to control and responds well to pruning. All grown up 'Bluey' could reach 15’.
Leaf The choice for most floral arrangements. Intense silver-blue leaves that appear to "grasp" the stems!
Trunk & Bark Smooth, silver-grey with olive, gold, and russet hues
Flower Profuse small white flowers
Exposure Full sun, part shade in hotter climates.
Soil Type Adapts to many soil types
Container Plant? A real conversation starter in a pot, on a patio, or porch.
What we learned in Southern Euc Trials In McDonough, GA (zone 8A), 2 year old Eucalyptus trees had minimal leaf damage and looked great following winters where temps reached 13 degrees.
4" Pot Well-rooted, slightly branching, and 8" min. (from top of root ball). A great value for a fast growing Eucalyptus tree.
1 Gallon Pot A more established root system with lateral branching. 12" - 16" (from top of root ball). A convenient size for transplanting a Eucalyptus tree.
3 Gallon Pot A dense root system with multiple branching. 20" - 3.5' (from top of root ball). A well established and mature Eucalyptus tree.
