Eucalyptus Seeds
Exotic Seed Pack
by DuneCraft

Eucalyptus seeds will grow into a small to medium evergreen tree.  It does not grow well on sandy/chalky soils or very wet sites.  The foliage will change as the tree matures, from a round leaf of waxy blue colour to a more elongated rich green foliage in the older tree.  If maintained as a shrub, however, the juvenile foliage will be retained.  The plant produces a sweet sap similar to maple syrup that is eagerly eaten by livestock, and is a favorite of wildlife such as Koala Bears.  White flowers are produced in mid Summer. 

  
The foliage has a strong odor similar to menthol. Used in SW Europe for timber and to dry out wetlands where mosquitoes breed, it is also in great demand as a herbal remedy.  The essential oil from the leaves is a powerful antiseptic and is used all over the world for relieving colds and infections.  Planting instructions are included on back of seed package.
