    Most of the 30 odd species of the genus Brachychiton (Malvaceae) are endemic to Australia. They produce stunning sprays or clusters of colourful blooms, often on bare branches before the new foliage appears. The trunks are shapely and sometimes swollen.

    Large, boat-shaped woody seed capsules appear after flowering is finished. These trees are very popular as ornamental specimens and are often seen in parks or gracing suburban streets. Most of the species are favored by birds.
