Mindanao Eucalyptus, a tree in the Waimea Valley, Hawaii known as the Rainbow Eucalyptus, Rainbow Gum, reaches a height of 75 meters, with a trunk diameter of up to 2.4 meters. Eucalyptus deglupta was discovered in Hawaii in 1929.
The species itself differs from other eucalyptus species in its multicolored bark. At first, the bark is bright green. Then, as it matures, it acquires blue, purple, orange and dark burgundy hues. The trunk of the adult trees pours all the colors of the rainbow, which is why it looks and gets its name. At the same time, the bark coloring is constantly changing. Colorful coloring of these trees is characteristic only of their smooth, layered and continuously changing bark. Every year the eucalyptus loses pieces of bark, which fall off at different times, revealing a bright green inner layer. At the same time, older parts ripen and become darker. As the process takes place constantly and simultaneously in different areas, the trunk of the tree never has the same pattern and color.
But underneath the amazing bark lies the same wood as most of the Eucalyptus trees: solid, with a uniform dense texture.
