    Would love to try and grow eucalyptus ceracea. Problem is I live near Echuca Victoria.
    Those beautiful orange flowers.

        It only grows in areas inaccessible to anyone. The few growing in town only ever have a few fruit, in high branches that are unreachable without expensive hire of hydraulic squirrel lifter, cannot be seen when ripened from the ground, and special permits for seed picking on rare species are needed. In other words, a time wasting expensive exercise. They are only found in areas of the Seppelts Range and King George River in the northernmost Kimberley.
