nature’s art



another fp girl showed me this the other day and i was amazed- i’ve never seen this before! rainbow eucalyptus is the only type of eucalyptus that grows in the northern hemisphere.  every year the trees shed their bark in multiple patches at various times.  this exposes the green inner bark which changes colors to blue, orange, purple and red as it matures – resulting in a rainbow of color.

so is it possible to have one of these in my apartment??? love.


  1. No way! I totally forgot about these! I saw these trees on a trip to Costa Rica a couple of years ago, someone had told me too look for them while I was there and seeing them is person is absolutely AMAZING! They’re all so beautiful and unique :)

  2. i love this!!! i want one of these in my back yard, also agree that this would be a great location for an fp shoot!

  3. I totally agree with everyone about it BREATH TAKING BEAUTY. I have never seen or heard of anything like this and consider it a blessing to now have knowledge of it. I NOW HAVE A FAVORITE TREE! A two questions….one for Mel Where did you get yours? Second one…what is FP?

  4. Joseph- My tree was a gift from my ex-husband, I’m not exactly sure where he got it. Although I do know it was ordered from the internet, so you could probably just do a search and find a few places. The mini trees don’t look the same as the those in the picture, but it’s still very nice to have.
