A grateful recent graduate of Miracosta College, Megan Boone called us for help. She wanted to donate a special tree to the Horticulture Department at the main campus in Oceanside. We found it, delivered it and planted it. It's a beautiful Rainbow Eucalyptus [Eucalyptus deglupta] and it will be a wonder to watch it grow. UPDATE: see photo above for a look at the Rainbow just six months later. What a marvelous way to say 'thanks for everything!"
As it grows, its bark will literally become a rainbow of brilliant colors. Native to New Guinea and the Philippines, it needs a lot of TLC to thrive here. Which is exactly what it will get from the wonderful folks at MiraCosta College Horticulture Department.
Bottom line: If you don't see the exact tree you are looking to give, give us a call and let's see if we can make it work.
