The problem with eucalypts is that they drop branches, suddenly, 
completely without warning. Also their leaves contain a substance which 
inhibits the growth of other plants. 
A neighbor has lush lawn growing right to the base of his gum trees, and 
I think he achieves this by being vigilant in clearing up the leaves. 
You could probably grow irises reasonably close if you do the same. 
Your trees sound lovely, what type of eucalypt are they? 
Cheers, Jan Clark, in Australia
