You're right. Interestingly, Arborgen just hired a eucalyptus breeder and also a colleague of mine was hired to do euc. work for them. They are primarily focused on E. benthamii and E. macarthurii and also hybrids with E. grandis and E. urophylla. Apparently, some of the UF clones of grandis are in fact cold hardy - a testament is 100' tall specimens in Gainesville that handled this past record winter with ease.
