In connection with your remarks upon the "Hardiness of the Eucalyptus," it may be of interest to you to know what success is met with in this locality.
With slight protection small trees have stood a moderately severe Winter, but without protection they have thus far been killed by the first severe frost. I speak of the E. globulus. Whether the E. bicolor is more hardy or not, I shall be able to determine after a trial I am now making. I might say in this connection that another Australian plant, the Cassia fistula, will not stand our Winters, but, when protected, has produced fruit abundantly the second season, in my garden.
