The Rainbow eucalyptus is a beautiful, multicoloured tree that looks like a work of art.

When the bark of a rainbow eucalyptus, also known as Eucalyptus deglupta, falls off, a deep green inner layer is revealed. This layer, which has been exposed to air for a considerable time, will eventually turn into various colors as it ages, including vibrant reds, oranges, blues, pinks, and purples. As more superficial layers peel away, exposing underlying parts already beginning to age, the various hues emerge.

This procedure results in an impressive visual that resembles a colourful crayon scratch artwork, coated with a layer of black crayon and then scraped away to reveal the multicoloured crayons underneath.


The rainbow eucalyptus, also known as Mindanao gum or rainbow gum, has a high commercial value for a colourless product. The rainbow eucalyptus’s thin layers of bark are an excellent source for pulpwood, the primary component of white paper.

Other names for this tree include the rainbow eucalyptus and the Mindanao gum. Because of their innate resistance to pests and diseases and their extraordinarily rapid growth rate (up to three feet per year), this species predominates in pulpwood plantations.


The tree bears white blooms and possesses evergreen leaves that are somewhat wide in size. The leaves harbor glands that are responsible for the production of aromatic oil. However, while having an aroma that cannot be mistaken, it does not produce nearly as much oil as other species of eucalyptus, which is why it is not as well recognized. That’s not a problem, though, because this tree is a real eye-catcher!


The only species of eucalyptus tree that is native to the northern hemisphere is the rainbow eucalyptus tree. It is mainly located in the Philippines, New Guinea, and Indonesia and thrives in tropical woods that get a lot of rain. Because of this, it is the only species of eucalyptus tree that grows in the rainforest.


In its natural habitat, the tree can reach a height of up to 250 feet (76 meters). In the United States, the frost-free regions required for the growth of rainbow eucalyptus can be found in Hawaii, southern California, southern Texas, and south Florida. On the other hand, the tree can only reach heights of 100 to 125 feet in the continental United States (30-38 m.).
