The Queensland Bottle Tree is a spectacular architectural plant, can be used in many landscape designs. Drought tolerant
Native to Southern and Central Queensland in Australia, the Queensland Bottle Tree grows to reach 20 meters in height. Its trademark bottle-shaped trunk can also reach 8 meters in circumference. Cultivated trees are usually much smaller, and when grown from seed take 8 to 10 years for the bottle-shaped trunk to become noticeable. It is estimated that some large specimens salvaged from the wild are over 120 years old. The Queensland Bottle Tree is tolerant of a wide range of soils, occurring in the wild, from stony outcrops to deep rich alluvial solid. The tree is generally drought and frost tolerant. Each bottle tree reflects its own individual character and can be used in many landscape designs.
