I raised 25 eucalyptus neglecta trees from seed, last year (2012), that I found on ebay/Australia. The seed is very fine, like dust.
The seedlings grew as high as 30" some much smaller.
One runt is only 2" high with very tiny leaves.
They were outside all winter, some had a little damage to leaves, I think it was sun damage, after a freeze down to 23F. I have given some of these trees to Family members and friends, all here in the Pacific Nortwest, Seattle Area.
We are on Guemes Island in the San Juans, in Washington State, near the Canadian border.
I still have some seed left, I will plant them this spring.

I have been growing E. neglecta for about 10 years with nothing but snow damage. As a juvinile it went through a winter low of 5 F, annually seeing 10 F. Large blue leaves make this small tree (18 feet) stand out from quite a distance. Highly recomend E. neglecta!
