Qld Bottle Tree (Not True Boab!) but can sometimes be called Boab tree!
The Qld Bottle tree is in our opinion one of the most beautiful and useful feature trees available, brilliant in any part of your landscape.The Qld bottle doesnt have an aggressive root system and will quite easily live through heavy drought.
Quite slow growing up to 30cm of growth per year in Nsw and can live for hundreds of years, often evolving into extraordinay shapes with beautiful leafy canopy.
One of the benefits of using the Qld Bottle tree in the landscape is that it is semi deciduous in therefore lets the much needed winter light onto your gardens below. The belly shaped trunk and Dinosaur looking skin(Bark!) is incredibly attractive.
These trees are sold in large pots and often sold as ground dug specimens as they transplant with almost 99.99% survival rate
