Eucalyptus Seeds (and related genera)

The eucalypts of Australia is a big genus with hundreds of beautiful species that we owed to use more in our Mediterranean horticulture. This year I'm offering a good selection of them. It's easier to grow a eucalypt from seeds than what you thought. In contrast to other Australian genera, the majority of eucalypts do not require smoke treatment to germinate and will grow easy and fast from a spring sowing. All of the species I list here germinate fast without any pretreatment required, unless otherwise noted. Do your own research of what species suits you best, but in my opinion all in my list are beautiful small or bigger trees that will suit the dry Mediterranean garden.

Listings in green are new or returning for 2024.

Eucalyptus albida    3,5€/20seeds

Eucalyptus albopurpurea (lansdowneana ssp.)    3€/20seeds

Eucalyptus caesia subsp.magna    3€/20seeds

A beautiful mallee from western Australia. Mature trees are small in size but the weeping effect of their branches, clothed with silver leaves and big pink flowers make it an exceptional conversation piece in the dry garden. Eucalypts are easy from seed. I prefer to sow them in early spring and they should be surface sown because their seeds are usually tiny.

Eucalyptus carnei    5€/20seeds

Eucalyptus cernua ('nutans')    3,5€/20seeds
