Strange survivors

At my house it stayed above 20F, but it was cold for a very long time. All of these are from my yard. I got lucky this time. Ninety eight was worse for me. I found little damage from cold, even little Acacia seedlings I plucked up from a local tree were untouched. I did lose a Furcrea, as you can see from a flattened freeze bleached rosette. LOL.

Wow, that view is fantastic.

Looks like you came through the weather with really good results.

What's the tall tree in the fourth photo? (The first vertical one) Thanks! There are some of these by where I work and we've been wondering.

Thanks buyorsell888. That was a nasty cold spell, but could have been a lot worse.

Hi mfm. That tree is a Eucalyptus perrinianna, and there are other Eucalyptus species around that look quite similar though this species is one of the best for the PNW.

If you can find it, this would be the one Eucalyptus to plant. My opinion anyway.
