Overview

  • This aromatic eucalyptus has unique shaped leaves that run the length of each stem
  • There are often lots of 'branches' off the main stem, so you can cut them off to make your bunch go further. 
  • Baby blue eucalyptus has a strong scent, its the most fragrant type of the eucalyptus. 
  • People love putting baby blue in their shower, the steam releases the oils, giving you a spa like experience!
  • Baby blue is great to dry, just hang it upside down... once dried it'll last for years.
  • Expected vase life is an average of 14 days with proper care and handling.
  • Note that when you're working with baby blue eucalyptus, it will leave a sticky residue on your hands, so wear gloves if that bothers you!

Number of Stems

  • Growers Bunch - between 8 and 12 stems
  • Average stem length: 15 to 20 inches
  • Give everything a fresh cut (about 1 inch off), at an angle, with your snips and put them in fresh water. With greenery you don't have to worry about crowding the same way you do with flowers.  
  • Remove any leaves that fall below the waterline of your containers, doing this will help prevent the growth of mold or bacteria which could cause premature wilting.

QUALITY

  • Your greenery will arrive looking thirsty and sleepy. This is absolutely NORMAL
  • Since flowers are a product of Mother Nature, the exact color tones and leaf shape of the greenery may vary to some degree.
  • IMPORTANT ** Not every stem will be perfect. I follow the 5% rule, meaning that out of 100 stems, 5 stems may break while unpacking, look a little too mushed, etc. Don't let this stress you out! It's totally normal and to be expected when dealing with fresh/live product.
