Eucalyptus tree care is very easy once they are established. After the roots are established this tree requires little to no maintenance. The silver dollar eucalyptus grows in zones 8, 9, and 10, but can be grown in pots and moved inside during winter in cooler zones. Plant eucalyptus trees in full sun and well-draining soil. They are adaptable to most soil types as long as the soil drain well. Eucalyptus trees do not tolerate freezing temperatures. Excessive top growth can be pruned back in winter or summer to control height and keep the tree tidy. This tree can be kept in a container and pruned to maintain a reasonable size. Fertilize silver dollar eucalyptus trees in spring with a slow release fertilizer when growing in pots or if your soil lacks nutrients.
