A prolific grower in the Bay Area, eucalyptus trees are easily recognizable by their fresh fragrance and gorgeous leaves.
common name: red river gum
scientific name: Eucalyptus camaldulensis
There are over 700 species of eucalyptus–I can think of 4 different kinds in my neighborhood alone! Red River Gum, above, are some of my favorites with their mini seed pods that change from bright green to red over time. They are often found in wedding floral arrangements and holiday decor. In fact, many species of eucalyptus are used in craft and DIY projects. I have compiled some of my favorites below, in case you are looking for a way to add some natural decor to your holidays!
