Brachychiton

Does anyone know if there are any broadleaf bottle trees growing in the Brisbane region?Do they resemble a Lacebark(discolor).There is a tree near the water tower at Kalangur North of Brisbane.I was told it was a discolor but I have my doubts.Any clues?

There certainly would be some Brachychiton populness is Brisbane, look in the older areas of Brisbane, they do resemble a discolor, just more divided in their leaf, and the dwarf form is more maple like in the leaf pattern.

Hi Robyn.I also have populneus growing at my place.Commonly called black Kurajong around here.Maybe this tree at Kalangur is a hybrid .Was hoping some tree guru may of seen it as well and had some idea .I may have to wait until it flowers.If the blooms are white,then it may be a Broad leaf bottle tree.It its pinkish then possibly a hybrid .
Thanks

The broad leaved bottle tree is called Brachychiton australis, there are some excelent image on this web site.
http://www.townsville.qld.gov.au/nad/_PlantDisplay.asp?pspecies=Brachychiton%20australis&sTitle=Vegetation
They do not have the beautiful flowers that the lacebark tree have but the leaves and trunk would look similar.
The narrow leaved bottle tree is the fat trunked bottle shaped tree, it is called Brachychiton rupestris.
Brachychiton populneus is called the Kurrajong tree and is not one of the bottle trees.
