Austin, IMHO, camphora, neglecta, gunnii, perrinniana,pauciflora, and maybe nicholii, dalrympleana, pulvrulenta are your best bets (assuming hardy provenaces/seed sourcess). globulus and viminalis are likely going to be extremely iffy for you (they are not reliable where i am). plants are best placed away from lawns (normal lawn watering and fertilization generally leads to shallow roots and late frost tender growth) and away from your house (some of the eucs can grow tall and fast and liable to blow down). ideally a sunny/warm spot protected from cold winds with excellent drainage and no watering after the plants are established are the best conditions for your plants. eucs don't mind heat unless the soil they are in is moist and hot at the same time (potential root rotting fungus). BTW, where did you get the seed from? good luck.
