Description

Also called silver-dollar tree, it is a broadleaf evergreen tree that will grow as a single trunk tree to 25-60’ tall in its native habitat (Australia). Bark is reddish-brown, peeling on smaller stems. Grown as an annual in the Cleveland area, it typically grows rapidly to several feet in height by mid-summer. Juvenile foliage consists of opposite rounded silvery bluish-green leaves (to 2” long) resembling large coins, hence the common name of silver dollar tree. Foliage is aromatic. Small white flowers rarely appear on juvenile trees or container plants. Foliage stems are frequently used by florists in fresh flower arrangements.
