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.

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.  

Get your Rainbow Eucalyptus today.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.

Can I grow Rainbow Eucalyptus in my backyard ? I live in South Carolina (upstate) and it is zone 7-8.
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: It will grow outdoors in zone 9 - 11. SC should be fine. If a long cold spell comes through take the steps to protect your tree by covering the base with mulch, hay or pine straw to keep it warm and cover it with a sheet or a towel to protect it from frost.

I read an article that said that the root system of the eucalyptus can spread over 100 feet and may cause problems to foundations and water lines. How far away from the house should I plant this tree?
Lorena L on Jul 12, 2014
Best Answer: Lorena,
I'll try and help! I ordered mine on June 9th 2014, haven't received it yet!
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!!

will this tree repel mosquitos like most Eucalyptus do?
Robyn on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: This tree does repel insects like the other Eucalyptus Trees, but its natural bug repelling aroma isn't as strong as the Silver Dollar Eucalyptus Tree's. I would recommend another variety of Eucalyptus like the Silver Dollar to repel pests.

Our soil is mostly clay---really quite pure clay, with a little sand thrown in here and there. Could this tree survive in the clay? If we would need to add other soil(s), how large would the hole for the tree need to be? We live near College Station, TX (Texas A&M territory). We have 19 acres. Thanks for you help.
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 have read reviews where the trees have been crop in the top, preventing them from growing properly. Are these trees cut in such a manner or are they small enough to be shipped without doing so?
josh r on Jun 5, 2014
Best Answer: No, we do not crop these trees... Once the tree gets to a height of 5-6 ft, we will trim slightly for appearance and branching but not cropping the top.
