EUCALYPTUS - RAINBOW GUM

Rainbow Gum Compliments of Amusing PlanetBotanical Name: Eucalyptus deglupta
Description

The unique multi-coloured bark is the most distinctive feature of the tree. Patches of outer bark are shed annually at different times, showing a bright green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones. This is a tall tropical tree to 60m native to the northern hemisphere. Very frost sensitive the Rainbow Gum is only suitable to large gardens or parks in the tropics or subtropics, it will prefer a site where the temperature does not dip below 15 degrees.
