I just bought a Eucalyptus plant and the nursery didn't have much information on planting it other than it was a fast grower. It was listed as an herb, and I bought a very small 4 inch pot. Now I am wondering if I am planting something potentially toxic to other plants, and/or an invasive potentially large bush like tree. I love the scent and thought I could grow some of my own, but maybe not? I can't find much info on the plant as an herb, other than what to use it for and there seems to be many varieties. Anyone know what I might have? It looks more like a vine at this point, but very true to the scent and leaf is round like the kind you find in the craft store.

Thanks, but that is the problem, there was not any additional information on the tag to tell me which kind I have and the nursery did not know either. I should have known and left it for him to figure out I guess! Thanks for the reply, I guess I will plant it and see what happens.

I would put it in a pot that you can shelter in the winter. Many of these plants will freeze.

Have the nursery where you bought the plant contact their wholesale supplier. It is nonsense that they can't supply you with this info. Someone is just being too lazy!
