Rainbow Eucalyptus

Found in New Guinea and the Philippines, the Rainbow Eucalyptus tree can reach heights of up to 230 feet.
The trees shed multiple strips of bark every year, but not all at the same time. As the strips of bark are gone, the inner green bark is exposed, and as it grows, every new patch first turns bluish, then orange, purple and maroon.
