Queensland Bottle Tree

This is a small to medium sized tree with a characteristic bulbous trunk which gives rise to the common 'bottle tree' name. Leaves are about 100 mm long and may have entire margins or be deeply lobed. The bell-shaped flowers are followed by seed capsules which contain many large seeds.

A magnificent looking tree for lawns or large parks and gardens. Does require a large space as this tree can can grow quite large.

This is a slow growing tree. The bottle shaped trunk may start to be noticeable at around 5-8 years of age. It tolerates a range of soils. Propagation from seed is relatively easy without any pretreatment. The seeds are surrounded in the capsule by irritant hairs and are best collected using gloves.
