Brachychiton acerifolius - Illawarra Flame Tree
A tall stunning tree from NSW and Qld, one of Australia's few deciduous native trees. Leaves drop from October to December, however in some seasons foliage will be retained on all or part of the tree. Masses of bright red flowers appear in early Summer while the tree is leafless. Flowering may take around 5-8 years from seed. The flowers are followed by large, leathery seed capsules. The tree is hardy in a wide range of soils and is suited for temperate to tropical areas.
Size: 10-30m, smaller in cultivation in cooler areas.
