Leaf information:

Aromatic lance shaped leaves

Preferred Soil:

Prefers well-drained, fertile soils. While adaptable, it thrives in moist well draining conditions, making waterlogged or very dry soils less ideal.

The Rainbow Eucalyptus is a breathtaking addition to large spaces, where its towering height and vibrant bark can be fully appreciated. It has stunning, multi-coloured bark, creating a kaleidoscope of green, blue, purple, and orange hues on a single tree. While care needs to be taken to provide enough space and the right conditions, beyond its beauty, it plays a crucial role in supporting wildlife, offering a habitat for various bird species and insects, thus promoting biodiversity.

**Given its potential size, it's generally more suitable for larger yards or gardens where there's ample room for it to grow without causing issues with structures, underground utilities, or neighboring properties.

Care Considerations:

A layer of mulch can help to retain soil moisture and regulate soil temperature. Minimal pruning is required, mainly to remove any damaged or poorly formed limbs and maintain tree health/structure.
