Bottle Tree (Brachychiton Rupestris):
Also called the “the narrow-leaved bottle tree” or “Queensland bottle tree,” this native Australian semi-deciduous succulent tree is featured in parks, gardens, and other landscaped areas. Bottle trees get their name from the distinctive bottle shape they form towards the bottom of the trunk between the ages of 5 and 8 years. With narrow leaf blades, dark gray bark, and bulbous trunk, this tree is a stand-out.
