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 a 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.

Love this tree!
Absolutely amazing how healthy and fast the Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree is growing. So glad we took photos of the first day in the ground. We bought for the pollinators to have in fall. Our honey bees and butterflies will love the blossoms ;)
I recently purchased a Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree. So far the tree is thriving and doing well. My wife and I have purchased many items from Fast Growing Trees. They will always provides you with quality products.
Rainbow Eucalyuptus Tree
Both trees I ordered were very healthy and are taking to the transplant very well. It has only been a couple months, so not much more to say than both trees were in excellent condition and are doing well at this point.
When do you start to see color?
I bought my rainbow tree 3 to 4 years ago, its huge now, about 25-30 ft tall. It towers over multiple shrubs and trees that are way older then my rainbow. It came in great shape and grows really fast. I'm in growing zone 9, but have yet to see any color. I came on here to purchase one for my friend for his birthday/ house warming gift and saw other comments concerning color and that it was just a regular eucalyptus. Does anyone else have color yet?
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 of 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 trees height and overall shape. Pruning should be done in the summer, but avoid pruning during excessive humidity.
