Description

The Brachychiton rupestris, commonly known as the Bottle Tree, is a distinctive Australian native tree renowned for its pronounced bottle-shaped trunk.

Its relatively sparse, upward-reaching branches and long, narrow green leaves further accentuate its intriguing shape, while clusters of yellowish-green bell-shaped flowers bloom in early summer, adding to its allure.
