Narrow Leaf Bottle Tree has a swollen bottle like trunk. The insignificant flowers followed by small interesting boat like pods. A very attractive specimen tree or useful indoor plant. This is the QLD bottle tree and is very similar in the way it looks to the Boab Tree also nicknamed bottle tree from Western Australia however they are a different family of plants. You can even try growing them in pots but the pot would need to be very large.

Customer Comments on Bottle Tree
I have grown a specimen for 10 plus years in a pot under a verandah facing west in Melbourne. Regular water and fertilizer and a prune to keep height down is all it needs to look great. Slow grower possibly due to weather. | Grant - Moonee Ponds, VIC 09-Feb-2015
