Red Flowered Kurrajong

Family: Malvaceae
Genus: Brachychiton
Species: Brachychiton paradoxus
Main Flower Colour: Red


The Red-flowered Kurrajong, Brachychiton paradoxus, isn't as spectacular as it close relatives like the Queensland Bottle Tree or the Illawarra Flame Tree.

It's usually only a small spindly bush becoming almost invisible when all the leaves drop at the start of the dry season but soon shows up again when it bursts into flower.

Flowering start in June and ends in October.


The main flower colour is red.
