About Rainbow Eucalyptus

Description


Located throughout the islands, including forests along the Hana Highway and near Maui Winery (Tedeschi Winery), the Rainbow Eucalyptus is a spectacular sight that lifts the senses. Look for the brown, peeling bark that reveals magnetic colors underneath: green, red, orange, in shades light and dark.

History


Although the Rainbow Eucalyptus originates from Australia (some say South Africa), you aren’t going to find any koalas climbing up these trees! (photo by River Wanderer/Flickr)
