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.

Get your Rainbow Eucalyptus today.

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.

wow
I do not have a green thumb at all. I researched for about a year before buying and planting. I planted this tree in Mid march following all recommendations. it started about 2 1/2 feet tall in four months it is now 5 feet tall. Amazing! I planted the tree with a bag of topsoil, bag of manure and the original soil from digging the hole. I did not need to water much since we have had record rains in the first 2 months it was planted. Now its hot hot hot i am watering it every other day and it is doing well. I water the ground about 4 feet outside the immediate area of the root ball. cant wait for a few more years until it starts showing the colors.

Very happy so far...
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!

I love this tree
It came via the mail which was surprising because it travelled very well. When it arrived, I planted it in the ground approximately one week after it arrived. I wanted to give it some time to recover from shipping. It has been thriving and in only a couple of months, I can already tell it is growing!

I am Very pleased with this purchase.

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.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

Planting & Care

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.

Put this at the back of our property to increase privacy from a house that sits on hill directly behind us. So far it's growing like a beast, it seemed to really enjoy the cool wet winter we had in San Diego County, it was about 6-6.5 ft and very scrawny looking when it arrived. Now after about 6-7 months its well over 10 foot, probably closer to 12, maybe 5-6 feet wide and the foliage is just beautiful.

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.

Marcia K on Feb 4, 2015

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.

is appropriate to plant this tree in SF in august?
cruz l on Jul 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Cruz
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 !
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.

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.
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.
2 year old Rainbow Eucalyptus, has grown nearly 25 feet but the canopy has yet to grow. It is planted with no tree competition for at least 70 feet. Definitely planted in a whole 4-5 times the root ball however the branches all the way up are only about 6-10 feet across. Anybody else experience this kind of growth? I thought is would start bushing out quickly. Soil is moist and roots should have no problem expanding. Full sunlight all day. Thougts

Will this tree survive if we occasional dipping under 26 degrees? It doesn't happen too frequently, but it does happen
Kim L on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in the pan-handle of Florida and we had a mild winter last year, just a couple days of freezing weather and I had to cut it almost completely back after. It is now coming back but it is still very small. So, it should survive, but might have to cover it during the really cold days of winter.
How long does it take for the tree to mature?
Nicole G on Jul 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: we have had ours for a couple of years and it about 7 ft tall. I am really not sure how long it takes.
