Everything about color in nature
And you thought that after exploring the world of exotic birds, tropical sea fish and wild orchids you knew everything about color in nature! These amazing rainbow eucalyptuses can be found living in tropical areas and sprouting well around the equator. Eucalyptus Deglupta, as botanists call it, grows under different names given by natives. In Australia, it is known as Kamarare, and it carries the name Mindanao Gum in the wider tropical region.

Although the lands of origin are New Britain, New Guinea, Seram, Sulawesi and Mindanao, it grows well almost everywhere. In fact, it grows so fast, that its main purpose in these regions is for timber.

With tiny, ant-like seeds, you would be dumbfounded to learn that it doubles its size each year and can grow as high as 200 feet with a trunk diameter of six feet.
