The Look of a Rain Forest in Your Own Yard!

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.

Received two as a Christmas gift last year -2017 (wife knows I love plants). Trees were about 3-4ft and have doubled in size, thriving, look great and I couldn't be happier. I have them in 20gal pots in GA. They do need lots of water in the summer and covered or brought in when we had extreme cold weather last winter. Finally adding this review because this company does a great job and we have ordered several varieties of plants from them.
December 30, 2018
Wonderful quality
We ordered 2 and they've both done great! Zero signs of distress since we planted them months ago. They've grown about a foot and have a ton of new leaves.

Amazing growth
We bought this tree 2 years ago. We planted it early in the spring and the tree grew really fast! Then we had a freak winter. We got temperatures down into the teens which never happens in Houston Tx. Our Rainbow froze and died, so we thought. This spring 3 sprigs sprouted out of the roots. We let them grow to see what happened. We cut out the smallest one. Wow!!! It's now October and since this spring we have a 15 foot, healthy double tree! Fifteen feet of growth in 5 months. We could not have been happier or more suprised.

We will know to protect it if we get hard freezes again.

I cannot wait to see how much this tree grows next spring/summer. It is beautiful! The trunk is mostly green now but there are hints of yellow and red starting to be visible.

Wow, nice surprise. My tree is about 3 and 1/2 ft tall. Looks great. Nice bushy leaves on the crown. Packaging was excellent. I couldn't believe what a nice big box and root ball packing it came in. I was expecting a Little Seedling or something. No leaves fell off the tree looks great. It's only been one week so time will tell. I live in coastal Bradenton Florida and looked all over for a rainbow eucalyptus, could never find one. Now I've got mine...

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree

Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree Planting Diretions

The Rainbow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) is a fast-growing evergreen, widely known for its gorgeous bark that peels away in strips revealing various shades of colors including green, red, orange, blue and purple. As the tree matures, the colors constantly change. The leaves are approximately 6 inches long with a narrow, spear-shape and a grey-ish green appearance in color. They are accompanied by white clusters of blooms that can appear on the tree at different times, depending on the age of the tree and climate. The Rainbow Eucalyptus is not only fast-growing, but will also grow to be very large reaching a mature height of 60-80 feet and width of 20-30 feet.

Seasonal Information: The Rainbow Eucalyptus is a full sun lover that does best in warmer climates that are frost-free and recommended for USDA growing zones 9-11. For hotter areas, the tree can take some shade.

Location: Plant your tree in a sunny location where it has plenty of room to grow. It’s an excellent tree to plant near a stream or pond where it can get all the water it needs. Ensure the soil is well draining as drainage is essential to the tree’s health. The rainbow can also tolerate some salt-spray, humidity and moisture.

Michael S on May 6, 2018
These trees hold a special place in my heart since growing up in Hawaii where I first became acquainted with the species. I now live in the Nevada desert and find myself desperately desiring the beauty these trees offer. I'm thrilled beyond explanation that I live in a zone in which they'll survive. I've purchased two to plant as memorial trees for my father and father-in-law and can't wait to get them in the ground.

I live in Connecticut. Is it too cold to plant in my yard? If so, how do I keep it small in the house and will it still do the bark peel away?

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.

Do you have suggestions on how to bonsai this beautiful tree. I live in Georgetown, SC and would love to have this tree but I would need to learn how to structure it into a bonsai?
Lisa D on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Start your tree out in a one-gallon thin plastic pot
Place in a sunny window without pruning any of the branches.
When the trunk reaches 2 inches or so in width, cut off 1 inch off the top of your pot and remove the same amount of soil.
Repeat this procedure once a month until 4-6 inches of strong taproots are exposed.
Cut the trunk back to the lowest three branches.
In spring, remove the plant from the pot and cutoff about half of the tree's roots.
Then transplant into a bonsai pot and keep warm and barely moist for one month while the new roots form. Then prune back some branches to create a bushy appearance.

Will this tree grow in zone 7 outside in the ground? I I pot it i can leave it outside til winter?
Joseph M on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I tried to pot it, but because it's a fast growing tree, I was reporting it every couple months. I am in Texas and when I brought it in for the few times it was cold, it was getting to big to put in the house. I just put it in the ground hoping its big enough to make it through the next winter
Looking for shade trees that will thrive in coastal zone 9. Sunny, sandy, humid, hot. About 8 blocks from the ocean. Salty air. Can get 50+ mph wind gusts during tropical storms (a few times a year). Is this a good tree for these conditions? Also, are these deep-rooted? If not a good choice, which ones would be?
Debra H on Jun 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am in a coastal location as well and mine is planted in sandy soil - I did amend the soil in the initial planting - I add a good planting soil to what is currently there - a sort of 50/50 mix of sand/soil and added the fertilizer that came with the tree & some time release fertilizer. I have it in an area about 5 feet from the street, and a 'weedy' type area that I want to cultivate and possibly add turf to, but it is a sorely neglected area. Mine is staked - only in the ground about 3 months now, and in the next couple of years will take the stakes out. I, too get very gusty winds, so I think staking is a must to start with any tree. This tree is a bit of an experiment for me, but decided to give it a try, and so far am very happy with it. It is small - about 3 to 4 feet with a trunk about quarter size thickness, very full foliage and it is giving a small shade footprint already. My tree is on the Southwest side of my lot and has direct sun nearly dawn to dusk. I hope this helps.
do the roots go deep or stay towards the top,i live in a slap basement and didnt know how close to the house it could be planted ?

BEST ANSWER: We don't have a basement either and both trees are 10 feet from the house, the roots are shallow but seem to grow around obstacles rather then move them.. it's been 10 years now.
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.
I live in Missouri. Will it survive the winter or should I pot it?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Rainbow Eucalyptus will have to be potted and brought indoors during the winter to survive in Missouri.
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.

What precautions need to be taken when planted in zone 8? We get roughly 3 weeks freezing weather (not at one time) annually. Coldest I've seen it here was low twenties for about a day, freezing for 3-4 days max at one time.
Simon F on Apr 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: i am not in zone 8, but in 9. But when I do have an occasional freeze, I cover tree in a sheet (not plastic) & water extremely well before freeze event & each day freeze is expected. Take sheet off during day for sunlight; only cover at night. My eucalyptus is doing fine, having grown about 3 feet since planting a year ago.
I live just south of San Antonio, TX in zone 8, but I am close to zone 9. The tempature can get well below freezing into the 20's during a cold front. Will this tree do good in the backyard?
Brian L on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in Lafayette La which is almost the exact same latitude and weather as San Antonio. I've had mine for two years. In that time it's gotten in the 20's only twice and for no more than 2 days. What I did was mulched the heck out of the base of the tree and covered it with a bed sheet the first year and I had no problem. It happened again the second year and all I did was mulch the heck out of it again but it was too big to cover. Again, it was in the high twenties for only a few days. It survived both times with no damage at all. I read that as long as the root system is protected and the cold snap does not last too long it will be fine.
is appropriate to plant this tree in SF in august?
cruz l on Jul 18, 2015
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 !
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.
Can this tree be planted in a pot to contain growth?
Edward W on Apr 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes but it CANNOT be a plastic one it have to be a clay type pot the bigger the pot the larger the tree will be. Hope this helps
Are these trees very salt tolerant?
Jan C on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't have a salt issue. It does grow fast, I planted the tree just south of Jacksonville Florida. It has gone to over ten feet and is showing a little color.

When is best time to plant it in South Florida?
Ingrid T on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We didn't plant it in the ground due to the high sand content in our soil, but instead, we planted the tree in an over-sized pot. Work out well as well had to relocate to Alabama. It's still in the pot, but thriving (has grown a foot in the past 3 months. We will be planting it next spring (late March or early April).
how will this tree do well in hanover pa?
judy m on May 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure about that, we are in south Florida and it is doing great. Tremendous amount of growth in the year or so ours has been planted. Tree was shipped last spring and it is doing much better that expected. Already has colors and very healthy. Highly recommend the tree and purchasing from Fast Growing Trees, they exceeded our expectations.
