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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
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.
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.
We love our new Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree
Our tree arrived in excellent condition. Very well packaged for shipping. Detailed instructions on planting and care were included. Our tree has already grown about 4 inches in 3 weeks. We are very happy with our purchase and will purchase from Fast Growing Trees again. We highly recommend Fast Growing Trees.
This tree is awesome. Last spring I lobbed off the top to recover from some damage done by cats and this tree wasted no time growing beautiful fresh new branches. It smells awesome and performs admirably.
Rainbow Eucalyptus trees
I haven't had my rainbow eucalyptus long enough to tell you very much about them but we have bought them twice how and they we're in beautiful shape very healthy and we live clear across the country they come from South Carolina to California.
Planting & Care
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.
