Re: planting under Eucalyptus tree
what kind of flowering plants are you interested in planting----shrubs, perennials, annuals???? many australian plants like grevillea, bottlebrush, some melaleucas, kangaroo paws,dianella tasmanica (flax lily), agapanthus (lily of the nile), dietes (fortnight lily/african iris) and the western native douglas iris are shrubs and perrennials that either naturally grow with eucs or are adaptable and have attractive flowers and/or foliage. that said, if you planting space is too small and the eucs trunk and or roots leave no are for other plants to grow (or even provide too much shade) then you will have problems even with plants that might otherwise do fine. hope this helps.
