    Brachychiton populneus
    Bottle Tree
    Kurrojong Tree

    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. The Green patterned bark is the perfect accent to rustling olive -green evergreen foliage. Small bell shaped flowers appear in spring. Drought tolerant. Zones 9-11 as an outdoor standard. Any soil is good, but should have good drainage. Encourage young plants with a little extra phosphorus in spring.
