Description

Among all the different Eucalyptus varieties, the Red Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus ficifolia) shows the most beautiful flowers. They are bright red and consist of many stamens sitting circularly on the typical cup that later matures into the seed pod. The leaves are gray-green, large and - depending on the sun’s intensity - surrounded by a reddish edge.

Eucalyptus are very fast-growing and thirsty plants, which are used worldwide for agro-forestry. For the cultivation as ornamental plants in a pot or in the winter garden, a constant and rich water and fertilizer supply is essential - Eucalyptus in the garden must be watered in summer and winter (!!) in dry spells. In return, Eucalyptus pleases you with decorative leaves that add an exotic touch to your garden and an aromatic fragrance that keeps the air clear and clean. Thanks to the essential oil, insect pests have no interest in the firm and coarse leaves: plant protection is usually not an issue with Eucalyptus. Although Eucalyptus Trees are vigorous growers, this should not keep owners of small winter gardens or greenhouses from buying one of the many species: they are all very tolerant of pruning and can be trimmed to the desired size every year in late winter.
