Mt. Ginni Eucalyptus.........

Mt Ginni Eucalyptus from Cincy Frank seed.  It looks great after the winter from hell.  I have it inside a poly tube with a set of mini lights which provide 5F additional heat.  It's great to see it green after two -8F nights, two -7F nights and many more nights below 0F.  Thanks Frank!

Nice Euc Tim! I love the leaves, kind of reminds me of E. niphophila.

Wow! That's really something!  That little tree survived temps below zero inside there?

Professional Horticulturist since 1985.  Grew up near St Louis, MO and never liked winter.  Still don't, even here in Central FL.  At least the palm palette is better!  Our garden Winter Haven is USDA Zone 9a/9b

Hi Brain

I can't recall the species.  I have the data somewhere.  It's some form of snow gum.

Hi Keith

not sure of exact temps inside the tube but I did monitor a Yucca carnerosana in the same set up a couple years ago and it appeared to give an extra 5F of heat at night.  I'm surprised to see it green since we had so many cold nights.  It may be too tall to protect next winter so I may let it loose.
