Click on links below to jump to that question.
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
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!
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.
The seeds follow the flowering of a mature plant. Not on the juvenile foliage that is cut for floral arrangements.
There are multiple Eucalyptus species with the term "silver dollar" in the common name, so be sure you get what you want.
