It seems an excellent Eucalyptus for indoor in cold countries.

Attractive and fragrant tree. It has taken winter damage two years straight for me but we had two very cold winters (lows in teens and highs in 20s for at least a week). My location also receives strong east wind during such freezes which doesn't help. I have a E. pauciflora (snow gum) right next to it that has never taken damage and handles wind better.

This species along with Eucalyptus gunnii (Cider Gum) are proving to be among several very hardy species for colder regions.
As with many groups and particularly individual species of plant that occour over large geographical areas, those from the coldest parts of their natural range (usually high altitude) should be selected if possible as they will naturally prove to be the hardiest of their type.
The Alpine Yellow Gum is interesting as it forms a cline (superspecies) with two others, namely E. johnstonii from lower elevations and E. vernicosa from higher elevations. E. subcrenulata sits somewhere between and forms a moderate to fairly large tree ultimately, whereas E. johnstonii is larger and more vigorous while E. vernicosa is a remarkable dwarf leathery leaved shrub and is just about as hardy as any plant can be!
