Long lasting, with a silvery-blue tone and a graceful habit, Eucalyptus pods are a wonderful addition to your winter containers, as well as to your holiday centerpieces. Otherwise known as Silver Bells Eucalyptus, the pods are actually the buds of the Eucalyptus flower. Eucalyptus is a native of Australia, but is grown almost all over the world, as long as there is no danger of extended frost. Much of Sunnyside’s Eucalyptus pods come from California.
For your winter spruce top containers, try mixing Eucalyptus pods with Blueberry Juniper, Oregonia, and Incensed Cedar for a natural, silvery winter look. Or weave them into a wreath with other mixed greens. Low floral centerpieces with fresh flowers and Eucalyptus pods make holiday tables special.
