The Eucalyptus Deglupta is commonly known as the Rainbow Eucalyptus and the Mindanao Gum, or the Rainbow Gum. The multi-coloured streaks on its trunk come from patches of outer bark that are shed at different times of the year. This darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon colour. The Eucalyptus Deglupta is the only Eucalyptus species found in the Northern Hemisphere. It grows in New Britain, New Guinea, Ceram, Sulawesi and Mindanao.
