There are also reports of trees that were over 200’ feet tall. This Gum has evergreen leaves with a wonderful Eucalyptus fragrance and is completely pest and disease free. The many lovely flowers attract bees & butterflies, and over 100 species of birds use these Blue Gums. Squirrels and other small animals enjoy eating the seeds as well. They can tolerate salty coastal conditions, any type of soil, and dryness. As the name suggests, this tree is an Australian (Tasmanian) native. they were introduced to the USA in 1853 where they were grown for fuel (lumber). They also make such a good windbreak that thousands of miles of California coast were lined with these trees.

The Tasmanian eucalyptus seeds have sprouted 2 out of 15 in the last 10 days. I would say that I need longer to see if the other seeds are still viable but I also started 2 other kinds of eucalyptus from other sellers a few days after starting these, and significantly more have germinated with the ones started after these. I don’t expect any more to germinate of these and that’s not a great percentage. I’ll update if several more pop up though.

Very low germination rate. Less than 10%. I literally have two seedlings from 25 seeds. I ordered the same species as seed (Blue Gum Eucalyptus) from another seed bank that unfortunately doesn't carry it anymore and I had more than 85% germination rates so the quality of this seed is poor, or they are selling old stock. I might reorder just to see if a new batch of seeds does better.
