We purchased a rainbow eucalyptus tree as a sapling 4 years ago. When we first received it it was approximately 4 feet high. The tree is now almost thirty feet in height. When we research this tree, we were told that it could be grown in a container. So we potted up the sapling as it grew, finally planted it in a large permanent container that my husband made by using a commercial liquid container. The tree is doing well and we live Beachside in Daytona Beach Florida. The tree has lost a lot of bark recently with a smooth grayish bark underneath and we're hoping that we will start seeing some of its colors soon. But we are starting to wonder if maybe the container growing might harm the tree and that we should replant the tree in the ground. We would prefer to leave it in a container but are starting to question if that will hurt the tree.
