Brachychiton acerfolius Illawarra Flame Tree

Brachychiton acerfolius
Illawarra Flame Tree
Kurrajong

Best known and grown for its bright red bell shaped flowers that cover the entire tree while it is leafless. Native to Australia this heat loving tree does extremely well where space is limited and often used as a shade tree in some desert regions. Perfect as a specimen tree as well and because of its broad base trunk, that quickly narrows, it makes a most unique bonsai tree. Can be grown as a container plant or in the greenhouse.

Fun Facts:
1. Blooms in late spring
2. Acerfolius means, leaves that resemble maples
3. The name Brachychiton comes from the Greek brachys, meaning short, and chiton, a type of tunic, referring to the coating on the seed
