Malvaceae week 0905 9112011 UD 025 Brachichiton discolor

 

Dear All: 

Family: Malvaceae

Genus:                 Brachychiton

Species:               B. discolor

 

I found this tree in grounds of a botanical garden in Los Angeles , even from a distance it was spectacularly pink… flowers are bell shaped,  and leaves like maple …   iis reasonably common in cultivation in Australia and is now seen in many tropical areas… and is survives many kinds of climates and toerates various soils… may be a successful avenue tree..  have seen used in Bonsai trade….

Enjoy

Usha di

Surely this Malvaceae week was awesome I came to know about many new genus 
under Malvaceae which never knew. This plant will surely add to the list.

Thanks Balkar ji and Tanay...

Tanay take a car ride down highway 1 from Vancouver down to the San diego coast one summer... you'll enjoy it... and get to see these things along the way..

Of course, at UBC you must have a treasure trove  anyway... I have been planning to come that way again , want to go to UBC bot g and visit the herbarium... my big ambition for the NW coast anyway...

SOMEDAY,,,,

Hi Usha Di.
UBC Botanic garden is good but most of the plant are from oriental countries
like China and Japan.

Thanks
Tanay
