A very attractive, medium-sized Eucalyptus to about 12 m tall, native to high altitude areas in southern New South Wales and northeastern Victoria, Australia. It has light, mottled bark, thick, bluish, drooping leaves and clusters of small, white flowers. Overall, it is similar to but larger and more vigorous than Eucalyptus pauciflora subsp. niphophila. In habitat it grows to the tree line and is usually covered in snow during winter. It is one of the hardiest Eucalyptus and will succeed in temperate climates in USDA Zones 8 to 10. Seeds require cold stratification for 2 months after sowing. To produce stable trees, seedllings must be planted when only 30 cm or so tall.
