Native to Australia, the eucalyptus is a genus of over 700 species, ranging from handsome landscape trees to large shrubs. They are not only known for their beauty, but also for their aromatic leaves which are the primary source of eucalyptus oil. The leaves range in both color and shape. As a young plant, the eucalyptus displays round leaves, whilst the adult leaves are long and slender and hang downwards from single stalks. Round leaf eucalyptus is particularly popular in the floral industry and is often used as greenery in floral arrangements or as accents in wedding and home décor.
