This eucalyptus is a good specimen tree with its trailing silver foliage and upright habit. The Silver Dollar eucalyptus is very drought tolerant once established and can do quite well on seasonal rains alone. This variety of eucalyptus gets tall, although some owners are willing to trim this tree to asmaller size. If you are not interested in constant maintenance of this type, plant it where it can have enough head room. See image below - this tree needs to be trimmed yearly to keep it out of the power line. NOT RECOMMENDED NEAR POWER LINES.
Juvenile leaves have roundish silvery leaves - hence the name Silver Dollar Eucalyptus. Harvested immature boughs are recognizible in many floral arrangements. Mature leaves become gray green and lance shaped. Trees have soothing fluttery leaf wind movement and rustling sound. Small white flowers and tiny seed pods form in early spring.
15-45 feet wide
