Hi

Its been Brachychiton week for me , and time to post what I've leant over the last 12 months.

Bidwillii - Deciduous shrub 1-4 M tall

My tree flowered in Nov

I defoliate 2 to 3 times a year

I missed a few years with the wiring and was starting to lose the shape I was after.

I like it! I have one in my backyard, and am considering trying an air layer.
