Eucalyptus is a genus of more than 700 species of shrubs and flowering trees of the myrtle family. It is a popular herb for home remedies with a distinct, menthol-like fragrance. It is used as an ornamental in the garden or stunning indoor plant.  

Like so many people, we are big fans of the eucalyptus family.  Eucalyptus is always the top choice when the florist adds the greenery and foliage to a bouquet. It helps complete the design and makes flowers stand out even more. Here are three types of Eucalyptus that are trending right now. 

Types of Eucalyptus for Flower Bouquet

Silver Dollar Eucalyptus

With the gorgeous bluey-green circular leaves, the silver dollar are like little medallions stacked in a row along each branch. It gives a wonderful way to work in some stunning leafy greens when you construct wedding bouquet, table greenery or home flower arrangement.

This beautiful foliage is incredibly popular amongst florist. 'Baby Blue' is a sprawling shrub of open, distinct blue-grey rounded leaves that alternate from side to side. It makes great cenerpieices or green additions around any home. It is also a classic of flower arrangement. 

Seeded Eucalyptus

One of the most popular type of Eucalyptus is called seeded Eucalyptus. With sturdy but easy to manipulate stems, it is a very diverse green for weddings, table arrangements, bouquets and so much more. Seeded Eucalyptus is not a variety, but any type of immature eucalyptus with the operculum attached. The operculum is a cap-like structure that holds the flower in and gives the capsule a fatter look. 

We love the smell of Eucalyptus!

You could hang the leaves upside down in your shower for a fragrant steam or use a mesh bag filled with eucalyptus lease under the hot faucet while you run the bath for a relaxing spa-like experience. 

Lavender Backyard Garden is not only a lavender farm but also grows greenery  and foliage for flower arrangement. We harvest our flowers and foliage from fresh and then air dried.
