Rainbow eucalyptus

DoriN1987 added on July 28, 2016 | Answered

I had bought seeds of rainbow eucalyptus abroad (I think it's eucalyptus at least). Sprouts grow normally, but I do not feel the smell of eucalyptus. Tell me, please, whether the rainbow eucalyptus smells like normal? If it smells at once, or you want to wait? In general - how can I recognize it it's a eucalyptus or not? Thanks in advance.

It's doubtful that you will have much Eucalyptus smell until the plants are more mature.

The seedlings can be fun to grow and when the seedlings are about 3 months old and 10 inches tall, they can be hardened off and moved outdoors. They cannot be exposed to any cold or frost.

Here is a link about the amazing tree.
