I am just a child playing gardener.
My E. vernicosa come from : http://www.ets-railhet.fr/
This winter, it frosted near -14°C at ground level in this nursery. My E. vernicosa have some leaves crunchy ... And it resprout slowly, but it resprout !
Yes Gus, I see this pictures, E. vernicosa in the wild, very nice. Every night, I dream TASMANIA, TASMANIA, TASMANIA ... It's an obsession. If I go to Tasmania, I never come back. And my wife kill me ! No, I love her, and she love me. Last, I think.
15 years ago, I have the opportunity to go to Tasmania, with my work, if I go one year in Terre Adélie ANTARCTICA ! But the psychologist say KERGUELEN ISLAND. Because, I run every day, when I was younger. It was last century !!! Terre Adélie, it is a very small archipelago, with a very harsh climate. And Kerguelen Island is less cold, and a good Island for trekking and nature lovers, better for me at this time. It is a good experience. I saw Crozet Island, Kerguelen with many small Island, Amsterdam Island with Phylicas arborea (I have one in pot ! Light frost, -4°C, kill 3 in my garden.), Saint Paul Island, and La Réunion. May be, in some years, if my wife is agree. I'll become !
I have many other Eucalypts pictures from other garden in Var. May be an Eucalypts QUIZZ ???
