Eucalyptus Pulverulenta 'Bluey' Eucalyptus Tree

About Eucalyptus Pulverulenta 'Bluey' Eucalyptus Tree

‘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.
