Eucalyptus Deglupta “Rainbow Eucalyptus”

Quite possibly the most beautiful tree in the world..  The Rainbow Eucalyptus has a trunk that shows off multi-colored layers of bark, producing a rainbow of shades.

When this tree gets a good dose of water, its trunk will swell, causing its bark to peel off in paperlike sheets- each exposed layer displays a different color- from reds to oranges,  greens and purples, even blueish hues. Whats more, the leaves release a pleasant Eucalyptus scent when crushed- I throw them in my hot tub on occasion.

A fast grower, Eucalyptus Deglupta loves sun, humidity and water. Give it a sunny spot with rich organic soil and watch it go. Can reach 60 feet in the tropics, more likely 40-45 feet high in Florida. It’s canopy is lush without being overpowering for plants below. There is a well known grouping of these trees on the “Hana Highway” in Maui.

Rainbow Eucalyptus is cold hardy down to the low 20′s. I have two in my yard that easily dealt with the mid 20′s.

Beautiful, Unusual, Hard to Find and Highly Recommended!

Update Aug 2013:  We do have this tree in stock- please call or email (see contact page) for information :)
