Rainbow Eucalyptus: 15 Pictures of the World’s Most Colorful Tree

It may look like something out of a fantastic dream or perhaps one very ambitious art project, but we assure you the rainbow eucalyptus is very much real and very much completely natural. Known scientifically as the Eucalyptus deglupta, the tall tree is found in New Guinea and its surrounding islands. Its distinctive coloring is caused when it shreds its bark periodically throughout the year. The revealed inner bark is bright green, which changes hue to blue, purple, orange, and finally maroon tones as it matures. The tree is valued for both ornamental reasons as well as for its pulp. Enjoy the pictures, and be sure to check out the video about the tree at the end of the page!
