New England Peppermint Eucalyptus Tree

Another cold hardy eucalyptus from southern Australia, the New England Peppermint Eucalyptus comes to us from the New England area of New South Wales, (sorry, there’s no Eucalyptus species native to Vermont…), and is fairly cold hardy, though its hardiness seems to be exaggerated a bit by many sources. Foliage is a gorgeous blue and at maturity it has gracefully weeping branches and textured black bark. Here in Portland we’ve had them freeze back during our coldest winters but sprout back quite vigorously. Some sources say hardy to Zone 6 but we’re going to stick with Zone 8b. An excellent choice for florists for its unique foliage in youth.
