- Cons: Come late spring, April-June, eucalyptus seeds become large and dark and in the 'cupped' stage of growth which might throw off the look you’re going for. In addition, at the start of the new growing season, the seeds appear small and dainty. While this is something to be aware of, it by no means ruins the eucalyptus look!
