Paul's Picks of the Month

Two Unique Trees And New Organic Products

Paul Harding

Rainbow Eucalyptus

Rainbow Eucalyptus (eucalyptus degulpta) is the only eucalyptus found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere. The multi-hued bark is its distinctive feature. The outer bark sheds to reveal a bright green inner bark that matures to blue, purple, orange and maroon tones. The Rainbow Eucalyptus is mostly used as an ornamental tree in gardens or parks. You can expect it to reach a height of 35-40 ft.

Michelia alba

Though both Michelia alba and the fragrant Ylang Ylang tree are related by family (Annonaceae), the Ylang Ylang needs to be quite old and large to bloom. The Michelia, a 25-foot evergreen with highly aromatic flowers, blooms even at a young age. Like Coco Chanel's Chanel No.5 perfume which uses Ylang Ylang blooms, the Michelia flower is used to make the world's most expensive perfume 'Joy'. Our trees are currently in bloom, so don't miss the chance to get a whiff of 'Joy' perfume in the making.   

New Organic Products

We now carry bat guano and seaweed concentrate. Both are included in our new line of Dr. Earth organic fertilizers based in Winters, California.
