In habitat it grows in subalpine areas to the tree line and is usually heavily 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 may benefit from cold stratification for 2 months after sowing. To produce stable trees, seedlings must be planted in their second year, when only 30 cm or so tall.
