Grace Cold Hardy Eucalyptus Tree
Eucalyptus elliptica 'Grace'
Why ‘Grace’ For her elegant, soft, flowing habit.
Hardiness ‘Grace’ will thrive in zone 7A and further south.
Getting Started This Eucalyptus is rare in nature but one of the most consistent and fastest growing of all the Southern Eucs. In McDonough, GA we have an outlier that reached 30 feet in height in three years!
Size All grown up 'Grace' could reach 40feet tall. That said, she responds well to pruning for size control.
Leaf New leaves are a delicate pink. Elongated fruit scented leaves emerge from stems that take on striking burgundy and purples in fall and winter.
Trunk & Bark Trunk is very straight and uniform. Even in young trees, the bark is a striking smooth powdery-white and sheds to reveal colorful yellow, grey, and orange patches!
Flower Small white flowers.
Exposure Full sun
Soil Type All types
Container Plant? Graceful nature makes it a great choice for a deck, porch, or patio.
What we learned in Southern Euc Trials In McDonough, GA (zone 8A), 10 month old Eucalyptus trees had minimal leaf damage and looked great after a winter where temps reached 6° F. In Suches, GA (zone 7A), 10 month old Eucalyptus trees - that froze to the ground at 0° F and 29 mph winds - regrew vigorously from the base.
