Bottle Trees NZ specialises in the propagation, transplanting, marketing and distribution of Bottle Trees throughout New Zealand.
The Bottle Tree (Brachychiton rupestris) is native of Queensland, Australia and its swollen trunk give it a remarkable appearance, giving rise to the name. It is a unique feature tree that landscape designers are using very effectively to create a point of difference in their gardens.
No two Bottle Trees are alike – take a look at the photos throughout our website to see all kinds of difference shapes and sizes.
They can be transplanted at any age, even when fully mature for landscape designs. Succulent, drought resistant and semi-deciduous, the Bottle Tree is also tolerant of various soils and temperatures.
