The fast-growing Eucalyptus neglecta hails from Victoria in southeast Australia and has been the most hardy species in our extensive trials. In our garden, Eucalyptus neglecta has survived 0 degrees F with only tip burn, but we've heard reports of root survival in Zone 5. The fast growing Omeo gum (30' tall in 10 years) has lovely, brown, exfoliating bark and oval, blue-green, juvenile foliage. The adult foliage of Eucalyptus neglecta later changes to an elongated leaf. Omeo gum is a striking conversation piece for any garden with enough growth for years of flower arranging.
