Many thanks for feedback
Many thanks you for taking the time to view the site and offer feedback. The trees are from seed, you know the difficulty w/vegetative cuttings in Eucs. Actually many were gathered from mature trees already thriving in the S. E. region. I had the privilege of working (and getting access to trees) with a British Horticulturist who started trials back in early 2000. Others were sourced, only when (coldest) provenances could be authenticated. Angus, the Horticulturist preached starting only with varieties/seeds adapted from the coldest regions!
Originally we named them during the trials just having a little fun matching names with personalities. Later we realized it might be better way for folks to identify them; most Southerners would struggle saying Eucalyptus pauciflora Debeuzevillei! Names also offer a little protection when others start trying to offer Silver Dollar trees as cold hardy options.
Heading over to Hardy Palms to post. Thanks for all your support.
