Too impatient Davy, I didn't read your post properly. Is your,eucalyptus large? Other foliage trees/bushes that can be treated same way, viz., cutting hard back, are sambucus Sutherland gold, lovely,yellow foliage, Acer flamingo which is pink, white, cream, etc. and berberis which are purple, but prickly. You can create lovely tapestry with foliage if you also add Heucheras and some blue and yellow grasses. Don't forget the odd evergreen too though.....maybe camellia, choisya, etc.
