Eucalyptus deglupta - Rainbow Eucalyptus

$9.95

Rainbow Eucalyptus is a spectacular multicolor tree from the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. The world’s fastest-growing tree, it's grown throughout the tropics to make paper pulp (what a waste), but is rarely seen here. The bark is so colorful it looks like a child's painting.

This dazzler grows to 75' and has white flowers. It grows best in tropical locations, will tolerate a short freeze, does best in zones 10-11. Most types of soil are fine, but this tree needs high humidity. The pale new growth is lovely and makes a spectacular bonsai.

The seeds are impossibly tiny. (two million per kilo)  We'll send at least 30 seeds (they germinate easily), but they'll look like lint. Sow them on a moist, sterile medium such as vermiculite and keep them warm, or place them inside a moist coffee filter in a ziplock bag. Once the seedlings pop up, give them plenty of circulation. They're quite prone to damping off.
