Brachychiton Megaphyllus

Brachychiton Megaphyllus is related to the flame tree and very rare to Queensland. It’s a small tree with has large stiff leaves, normally found in the Northern Territory. It has taken us by surprise in that a Casuarina seed must have blown into the seed pot and germinated after the Brachychiton was planted.

From the photograph one notes that the Casuarina dwarfs the Brachychiton which at aprox. 21cm tall is flowering with a beautiful array of red/orange blossom.

If anybody could give us more information on the Brachychiton Megaphyllus it would be greatly appreciated!
