Bottle Tree

SCIENTIFIC NAME | Brachychiton Rupestris

The Queensland Bottle Tree is a distinguishable, native tree to Queensland, Australia. With its bottle-like shaped body as they age, the Bottle Tree is the perfect piece to accommodate any home and garden. The Bottle Tree is in fact only semi-deciduous, only dropping some of its leaves through winter. Once spring hits, the canopy of the bottle tree creates a colourful canopy as it flushes new leaves.


The main beauty of the Bottle Trees is it’s ability to expand in its trunk to around 3-4 metres in diameter. The older the tree, the fatter the trunk. The Bottle Tree thrives with plenty of consistent water to encourage growth. The ‘bottle’ shaped body comes from the tree retaining water between the trunk and inner bark.


The Bottle Tree is a drought tolerant plant and can grow in a wide range of environments. Our bottle trees are accustomed to hot temperatures and frost, and can be planted in the ground or in a pot with drainage. They benefit from full sun or light shade, and light fertilisation.
