You might think this tree has paints on it but its all from natures gift on us. This gorgeous tree is called Eucalyptus deglupta, commonly known as the “Rainbow Eucalyptus” , and also known as the Mindanao Gum, or the Rainbow Gum. Its multi-coloured streaks on its body comes from patches of outer bark that are shed annually at different times, showing the bright-green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones.
