Product Description

Brachychiton discolor, commonly known as the Lacebark Kurrajong, is a distinctive and ornamental deciduous tree native to the rainforests of northeastern Australia. Revered for its unique features, this tree combines aesthetic beauty with environmental resilience.

The Lacebark Kurrajong is recognized for its striking bark, which undergoes a remarkable transformation as the tree matures. The outer layer of the bark peels away to reveal a mosaic of colors, ranging from green to cream, gray, and even pinkish hues. This peeling characteristic adds a fascinating texture to the trunk and branches, making it a standout feature in the landscape.

The tree typically grows to a height of 30 to 50 feet (9 to 15 meters), displaying a spreading canopy with lobed, palmate leaves. During the warmer months, the tree produces bell-shaped, cream-colored flowers with a touch of pink, adding a delicate charm to the branches.

Brachychiton discolor thrives in well-drained soils and is well-adapted to both dry and subtropical conditions. Its unique bark and attractive foliage make it a popular choice for gardens, parks, and as a street tree in suitable climates.

Aside from its ornamental value, the Lacebark Kurrajong has cultural significance among indigenous communities, often associated with traditional uses for food, medicine, and tools. With its distinctive appearance and cultural ties, Brachychiton discolor stands as a captivating and meaningful addition to the Australian landscape.
