Trials Update: Southern Eucs in Poland Thriving in First Season!

Posted on September 29, 2016 by Ed Coughlin

Southern Eucs has over 7 official Trial Gardens with over 300 individual planting throughout the world.  One of the most exciting and unique locations debuted in March, 2016 when Shino Shino took delivery of 13 species of seed to plant in (zone 6b)Poland.    


It quickly became obvious that Southern Eucs first European Trials Master was serious about his craft.

Seed was sown and in no time Shino was communicating pertinent information on the trees germination and growth rate, susceptibility to fungus, and aesthetics.  

The trees, 6 mos. old from seed, are all flourishing.  No surprise four of Southern Eucs most popular and cold hardy species Eucalyptus neglecta 'Big 0', E. camphora 'Lucky Country', E. rubida 'Cab Sav', and E. stellulata 'Sheila' are thriving.

It's encouraging that Shino has had success with the difficult to seed and slower growing Eucalyptus pauc. 'Bonza'.


Even more excited to see next spring's new introductions Eucalyptus parvula 'Funky Monkey' and E. nova anglica 'Maggie' doing so well.


And highly anticipating Shino's feedback and hope to see similiar results with Eucalyptus perriniana 'Corker' which has yet to complete our 3-year trials.

Check back in early spring to see how the trees respond following the Polish winter!
