Thomasia pygmaea


These are a few internet and other resources on the Sterculioideae that might prove useful:


  • Kapitany, A (2011), Australian Bottle Trees and Boabs, published by the author, Boronia, Victoria.
  • Rathie, K (2014), Brachychitons: Flame Trees, Kurrajongs and Bottle Trees, published by the author, Toowoomba, Queensland (see link to a review below).


Several issues of the Society's journal "Australian Plants" are particularly useful for those interested in the Sterculioideae. The following articles are particularly relevant for Brachychiton and the related genera can be located using the indexes to 'Australian Plants' that can be obtained from ANPSA's downloads page.

  • Vol 1, No.9 December 1961; The Genus Brachychiton.
  • Vol 21, No.172 September 2002; Brachychiton bidwillii - an under-exploited species.
  • Vol 25, No.198 March 2009; Queensland Bottle Tree for Cranbourne - transplanting a mature tree.
