Some Of Our Rarest Trees
Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees Eucalyptus Deglupta
As an ornamental specimen, is popularly admired for its multi-colored "painted" appearance, from whence the common name, "Rainbow Eucalyptus" originated. Fine layers of bark exuviate in strips of varying shape and size, revealing a smooth, white to pale green surface, which with age turns to vibrant green, grey, pink, red, orange, blue, and purple. The rainbow effect is most impressive on habitat specimens. We offer these trees in seven gallon containers. From 8 to 10 ft in height. These trees can double in size during the growing season.
