Rainbow Eucalyptus in Hawaii
Rainbow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) seen on thr road to Hana, Maui. The unique multi-hued bark is the most distinctive feature of the tree. Patches of outer bark are shed annually at different times, showing a bright green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones. The previous season’s bark peels off in strips to reveal a brightly colored new bark below.
