 Brachychiton rupestris
Family: Malvaceae
Subfamily: Sterculioideae
Queensland Bottle Tree
Origin: Queensland (Australia)
CaudexCan be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate water

The bottle tree is a small to medium sized tree which may reach 18-20 metres in height although it is usually much smaller in cultivation in cooler areas. It has a characteristic bulbous trunk which gives rise to the common name and which makes the tree unmistakable. Leaves are about 100 mm long and may have entire margins or be deeply lobed. The bell-shaped flowers are yellowish in clusters at the ends of the branches but are not especially conspicuous. The flowers are followed by seed capsules which contain many large seeds.

B.rupestris is commonly cultivated and is hardy in a range of climates although it may be slow growing. The bottle shaped trunk may start to be noticeable at around 5-8 years of age. It tolerates a range of soils.Moderate to little water, needs good drainage.

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.

Family: Campanulaceae
Olulu, Alula, Hawaiian Palm
Origin: Hawaii
CaudexSmall shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.

This short-lived perennial species is a member of a unique endemic Hawaiian genus. Both species have succulent stems, flower stalks that grow out from between the leaves. It has clusters of fragrant yellow flowers in groups of three to eight in the leaf axils.

Botanists and horticulturists have helped to save the species from extinction by pollinating plants and collecting seeds for propagation in collections.
