Rainbow Eucalyptus covers the entire spectrum:

  • Jaw dropping color scheme as bark peels revealing Incredible beauty underneath
  • Vivid pastel color on a solid, sturdy tree
  • Considered by many one of the most beautiful trees in the world
  • Only Eucalyptus tree that is native to the northern hemisphere
  • Cold tolerant to 26 degrees

Somewhere under the Rainbow, Eucalyptus shows its beauty

Monet himself couldn’t paint a lovelier tree than the Rainbow Eucalyptus—a tree that is like a canvass for the colors that only nature herself could supply.  As patches of its bark shed, pastel streaks of light green and sunset pink, climb vertically up the tree’s impressive trunk.  It’s the inner bark that reveals a spectrum of incredible color—oranges, maroons, even blues.  It’s no wonder the Rainbow Eucalyptus is considered by many to be the most beautiful tree on earth.  Although called a 'Eucalyptus,' it does not have the powerful fragrance associated with most Eucalyptus Trees.  The real show is the trunk.

Let the show of color begin

Throughout the year, the bark of the Rainbow Eucalyptus will begin to flake away.  At first a bright green layer will emerge beneath.  Then, the exposed inner bark will delight with a change of color as it matures.  Glossy splashes of blue, purple and orange give the tree a unique glow that will add an awesome display to its surroundings.  At first glance admirers will wonder if it’s even real.  

Bring the look of a rain forest into your yard or landscape.  You can even place it in a pot and turn it into a Bonsai tree.  Don't deny your garden or landscape the beauty it deserves.

It's Easy to Plant your Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Healthy tree
Received a very healthy tree about 3 ft tall. It has doubled in size in two months. It has not gotten big enough for the trunk to display the colors Like in the pictures. I don't expect to see that for at least another year. I only rated the hardiness as moderate because this will be the first winter I've had it. It didn't have one leaf droop in a Florida August and September.

The Tree root of no return
Though I avidly followed instructions for this tree root ( trust me it was a flimsy one too with no sign of even near live ) , it never grew hardly at all . And though I was diligent in water instructions and really wanted this tree there is an empty spot where I finally gave up . Same with the Empress Tree.
When I first wrote to this company to get replacement trees they sent me ( instead of a prompt replacement as other companies might do ) a crock of email and I could see they simply didn't believe the email that I worked on to explain why in the first place. All this said , I can never recommend this company .. what a heartbreaking loss of not just money but the chance to start two trees I needed and loved.

My Tree
I ordered this tree to replace a shade tree in my front yard because it is supposed to be a fast growing variety. It arrived in excellent shape and I planted it about a week later following the instructions provided. It has flourished and grown about a foot in the month that it has been in the ground and I can't wait for it to mature enough to show its colors.

My eucalyptus tree arrive in perfect condition. My husband & I were both very impressed with the thoughtful construction of the packaging to prevent any damage enroute. The tree has healthy-looking leaves, & I couldn't help pulling just one off to crush & smell- love that wonderful scent. Only one thing- I was expecting the tree to arrive in the fall for "best planting time for my zone (southernmost Mississippi), but it has arrive in the middle of July. I've planted it in a large pot for now, & will put it out in yard in September with great anticipation!

It is true that the roots will spread over the growth of the tree, plant it as far away from plumbing as you can and still createing the shade your looking for as it grows. Good look! It will be beautiful when it matures!!

Do animals ie horses, cows, or goats eat eucalyptus, and will it hurt them if they do?
Marcia K on Feb 4, 2015
Best Answer: Neither eucalyptus trees nor the eucalyptus oil that can be extracted from the leaves is "poisonous". However, it does contain some toxins which can cause acute gastric problems if ingested.

The few animals which feed on eucalyptus leaves, such as koalas, Ringtail possums and Greater gliders, are able to filter out the toxins through their digestive systems. Enter an answer to this question.

Marilyn H on Jun 10, 2014
Best Answer: The Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree adapts to many soil types. If you're concerned mix your soil with some potting soil before planting. Dig a hole twice as deep as the root ball and three times as wide. They prefer humid environments, so Texas should be a great area for it.

I want to buy this tree but I will just put it in our garden in August, when our home is ready.Can I buy two right now and keep them in a container until August or should I buy them in August?
FLAVIO D on May 15, 2015
Best Answer: I'd buy now, put them in larger containers with "Black Cow", and take good care of them - they like water and sunshine. Snip any new growth that's lower than where you might be mowing around. I didn't let the top 'spread' until mine reached 6' (looks kinda scrawny for a while, but it fills out and makes for a nice canopy).

Can this tree be used as an indoor Bonsai?
Catfish Man on Jul 26, 2015
Best Answer: Not likely.
Unlike some tree species, eucalyptus has an uncontainable root system. It will lift concrete or burst out of any pot. Even pruning it using bonsai techniques won't prevent the expansion and growth of the trunk and root system.
You might get a year or two out of it but it will eventually need to be allowed to grow or it will die.

Yes you should be fine planting in August, but be prepared to give extra care and attention on warm days. If it's a scorcher (do you even have those, we're in s.c. and it's always a scorcher) you will want to protect it with a patio umbrella or shade cloth so that IT doesn't get scorched !

So will this really grow in let's say a 24" ceramic pot outdoors in Miami? It will be facing in a patio that faces NE now but as summer progresses into fall, it will still get plenty of sun. I just need a lot of shade to cover the one window AC I have. The other ACs are fine. This is a cottage we rent out. I've never seen this eucalyptus in Miami and I've lived here my entire 60 years. Just let me know.

Have seen these lovely Rainbow Eucalyptus in Costa Rica.
We live on Cape Cod, zone 7. But we have salty windy air, and can hit between 0 and 10 degrees F. in the winter. And had record snowfall last winter, record length of low temps too.
I dont want to spend a lot of money for such a lovely tree, if its survival chance would be low?
Thank you, Falmouth, MA

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
