Frost tolerance: -15ºC to -20ºC
Here you have four examples of tamed cold hardy ornamental Eucalyptus achieving their final destination as plants in big containers, whose frost tolerance makes them suitable for cultivation outdoors in USDA Zone 8 gardens and favourable microclimates of USDA Zone 7 gardens. Some of these can reach giant sizes if planted out and not subject to size control, but can also be kept as container plants with a shrubby habit.
Frost tolerance: -12ºC to -17ºC
Frost tolerance: -12ºC to -15ºC
Cold tolerance: -8ºC to -12ºC
Versatile plants, Eucalyptus can be grown in many ways. If you want to add a piece of Australia to your timber planting, big yard, small yard... or no yard... you can!
