Eucalyptus pauciflora ssp pauciflora
Snow gum, White sally, Cabbage Gum
Description: A slow growing species with striking white bark and branches, reported to withstand snow and wet soil, although I have not had much success with this in Zone 6. The trunk is often twisted, add the white bark and you have one of the most picturesque of the hardy Eucalyptus species. Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania. Found along coastal areas so cold tolerance greatly depends upon location.
