      Hello Varina,
      Eucalyptus requires plenty of light but doesn’t need too much heat, as long as it doesn’t freeze. Globulus is one of the most cold-tolerant species. You can grow the tree in a sun room, but not in a dark room.

      Hi, in zone 7, NJ, already received it wondering if it has a chance. Also is some shade ok? Thanks…

      Hello Lace,
      Eucalyptus will tolerate some shade, and takes well to pots. I’m in a zone 7, too, and had one of these for enough years for it to get very large. They do grow incredibly fast. But then the tree was lost to frost on a particularly cold winter. Maybe what with global warming you’ll have better results.

      Thanks Richo. Found a great full sun spot and plan to tipi it as long as I can reach for winter. Glad you carry these.
