PARROT TREE

Parrot tree Compliments of sunshine coast dailyBotanical Name: Schotia brachypetala
Description

The common name of Parrot Tree derives from the large numbers of parrots attracted to the tree during its flowering season. Flowers appear in spring, are numerous, deep red, and filled with nectar, although exact flowering times vary from tree to tree. The name, Drunken Parrot Tree derives from the fact that the individual flowers contain so much nectar that it has a tendency to ferment before the birds can eat it all, resulting in a mild narcotic effect on the birds. A medium to large, spreading tree, growing up to 20 meters, but more commonly from 5 to 10 meters depending on conditions.
