Eucalyptus gunnii var. divaricata, Vashon Island Botanic Gardens, Washington.
Close-up of the adult leaves of E. gunnii var. divaricata. They look quite similar to those of E. gunnii ssp. archeri.
The distinctive, very small juvenile leaves of E. gunnii var. divaricata in my garden.
This young E. gunnii tree in my garden is the form called 'silverdrop' that I got from a German seed packet. It has very silvery leaves larger than those of E. gunnii var. divaricata and seems quite hardy.
The adult leaves of E. gunnii 'silverdrop' with a coating of frost on the leaves.
A green form of E. gunnii. This tree in Olympia was severely bent over in a freezing rain event in December 1996, and has responded by sending out vertical growth all along the trunk. It survived the freeze of December 1998 (and not in a very warm microclimate), suggesting that there are indeed some green forms of E. gunnii that are quite cold hardy. However, it was recently cut down by the owners.
