Re: Damage report
I'll get a few rooted cuttings and/or pot up some of the naturalized Illicum so you can try them in your garden.
Yes, my Aucuba's are in full shade.....they do enjoy the winter shade.
The only two Eucalyptus which will survive are E. lacrimans and E. debeuzevillei 'Mt. Ginni 1,750m' form. I ended up bending over the E. lacrimans and burying it in snow the night before the freeze. Mt. Ginni is in a tube with mini lights. The lights really don't throw off much heat, perhaps 5F or so? I hope she doesn't loose any branches, only time will tell.
