Exotic, Rainbow-Toned Trunk and Growth

Why Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees?

One of the most beautiful trees in the world, the Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree is truly second to none. As the tree grows, its outer bark delicately peels to reveal the inner bark, which starts out in pastel green and deepens into orange, red, pastel blue, and sunset pink hues. These multicolor streaks set the Eucalyptus Tree apart.

And though Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees can reach a towering height, you can trim them, keeping them as patio plants or even winter house plants next to a South-facing window. Either way, you’ll love their gorgeous tones and refreshing eucalyptus fragrance year-round, indoors or out.

Even better? Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees are naturally resistant to pest and disease issues, making them extremely easy to grow. Plus, they’re fast growers — gaining up to three feet per year, so you’ll get to enjoy their beauty soon after planting.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: 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.

Before planting, water the tree well. Then, dig a hole just as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. Carefully remove the tree from its pot, ensuring not to disturb the root system too much.

Position the tree in the hole ensuring that it is standing straight and begin backfilling the hole. Tamp down lightly on the soil as you go to ensure there are no air pockets. Water the tree deeply and add mulch around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture and keep competing growth away from the planting site.

2. Watering: Provide your tree with regular water and never let the soil get excessively dry. It’s the perfect tree to plant near bodies of water so that it can get all the water that it needs.

3. Fertilizing: Your tree will grow well without the need for fertilizing. However, if your tree is struggling, choose a liquid fertilizer low in phosphorus and dilute it (or use half-strength) but generally fertilizing is not required.

4. Pruning: Pruning is recommended to help maintain the tree's height and overall shape. Pruning should be done in the summer, but avoid pruning during excessive humidity.

FAQs

Where is the best place to plant a eucalyptus tree?

Eucalyptus trees grow best in tropical climates similar to their native range of the Philippines and Indonesia. In the US, similar climates can be found in southern parts of Florida, Texas and Hawaii where there’s high rainfall, warm temperatures, sun and humidity.

Can you keep a rainbow eucalyptus indoors?

We don’t recommend growing the rainbow eucalyptus indoors. If needed, you can start it off in a container while young and move it to a more permanent location.

How long does it take to grow a rainbow eucalyptus?

While eucalyptus is known as a fast grower, you might have to wait to see the colors appear. It can take anywhere from 5-10 years or more for the colors to start to appear (depending on climate), but the wait is worth it!

update

Amazing growth. The only thing I wish it was more spread out. From what I have read the colors should be starting to come though soon. Can't wait, plan on ordering another tree. The photos are 2 years apart. From a "twig" to a strong trunk. Still growing very happy with my tree.
