The World’s Most Amazing Trees: The Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree

Like most aphorisms, the adage “art imitates life” is applicable in many cases, but is especially so when remarking on the stunning canvas that is the rainbow eucalyptus tree. Resembling some sort of psychedelic Pollock painting, what one might easily confuse for frenzied, highly saturated brush strokes is actually Mother Nature’s grunt work.

This brand of eucalyptus tree sheds its bark in patches sporadically throughout the year and in the process transforms into a technicolor dream. Initially, the exposed undergrowth is bright green, though as it matures the colors shift to blue, purple, orange and then finally maroon tones.
