Eucalyptus deglupta, or rainbow eucalyptus, produces bark so colorful you’d think it was watered with paint.

This evergreen tree is native to moist, humid, tropical forested areas in New Guinea, Indonesia, and the Philippine Islands. It is the only eucalyptus tree that is indigenous to the Northern Hemisphere.

The beauty and mystery of Nature shines in this magical plant!
