Silver Dollar Trees

Do Silver Dollar trees have wandering roots that head for water–like underground drain pipes. I have been told that they do.

Yes, they are very water hungry and if they cannot find a way to get enough water in the soil, may invade pipes.

Silver Dollar Gum Tree Pests

My daughter’s silver dollar gum tree has large crescent shaped sections of the leaves eaten out by something. What could be eating these leaves, and what can she do to stop the damage? We live in Las Vegas.

Since any number of things can attribute to this, I would recommend treating the tree with neem oil. It will kill both pests and any fungus on the tree. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm

Silver Dollar Gum Tree

Is it possible to keep a silver dollar gum tree as a bush or small tree? I would love to plant one but do not have room for a tall tree. I have read you can prune dramatically annually and that may permit a bush or hedge instead of a tree. Is this correct? Thank you very much!

Rooting Eucalyptus Branch

I have searched the web for days on this…can I root a Eucalyptus branch from a tree? It is a silver dollar tree. A neighbor cut off a couple branches that I would love to root. I just can’t find info on that.

The most common and easiest method of propagation is from seed.

You can propagate from cuttings but it is difficult.

Here is a link with more information.
