The grafted forms are generally all small to medium trees with glossy green foliage that forms a dense conically shaped canopy. They are suitable as shade, specimen or street-tree plantings.
While their foliage is lush, Brachychiton have good drought tolerance and perform well in varied soil types.
Large panicles of pink to red flowers develop over the summer months providing an incredible display.
