Eucalyptus cinerea has fragrant, blue-gray, round leaves on semi-woody stems. The cut stems of Eucalyptus cinerea are great for flower arrangements, wreaths, and drying. Reliably hardy in Zone 8 and above, Eucalyptus cinerea will generally survive in Zone 7 for several years.
Eucalyptus cinerea prefers full sun and requires well-drained soil. Also known as Silver Dollar Tree, it tolerates dry soil and coastal conditions. In colder zones, treat it as an annual. Where perennial, it can be grown as a tree or cut back to maintain bush form.
