Eucalyptus Foliage

Eucalyptus foliage is very popular this spring, from leafy garlands, to lush wreaths and verdant displays. We love the remarkable array of shapes and sizes that are found in nature, from long, thin, oval, round, feathery and diamond. These wonderful botanicals add volume, texture and height to decor. And when it comes to color, most foliage is green, simply because all photosynthetic plants rely on chlorophyll for energy. Green is considered a neutral color and can often be left out in planning a color scheme. There are many different shades of green - from light and dark hues, blue and silvery tones. Matching the right eucalyptus to colorful flowers can have a subtle but very powerful impact.

Here are some of the varieties we’re harvesting.

Eucalyptus pyriformia

Eucalyptus mimiata

Eucalyptus blue gum

Eucalyptus rudis

Eucalyptus sideroxylon

Eucalyptus leucoxylon

Eucalyptus willow
