Eucalyptus deglupta, also known as Rainbow Eucalyptus, is a tall, columnar tree native to the Philippines and Papua New Guinea. It is known for its striking peeling bark that displays a range of colors, and it can grow up to 200 feet tall in its natural habitat, though it typically averages around 80 feet. This species is fast growing and prefers humid, cooler tropical climates. It thrives in USDA Zone 10-11, making it suitable for outdoor cultivation in Florida and southern California. It thrives in full sun and moist soil, and is tolerant of flooding.

To care for Eucalyptus deglupta, fertilize with an organic fertilizer in the spring and summer, and cut back for size or shape control in the spring before growth starts. Prune away dead or damaged branches anytime. If growing the plant in a pot in a colder region, keep the soil moist, use ample drainage, and provide supplemental lighting if needed. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer and support the larger trunk if grown indoors. This tree is planted for its beautiful bark and stately appearance. Its leaves have a pleasant, spicy aroma due to their essential oils.
