Brachychiton populneus, also known as Kurrajong, is a versatile and hardy tree found throughout the varying habitats of Australia. Its trunk serves as a water storage device for survival in dry climates, and its bell-shaped flowers come in various colors, while the leaves vary in shape. The Kurrajong has been used for multiple purposes throughout history, including by many Australian Aboriginal clans and tribes. Its seeds were often roasted and used for food, and water could be obtained by squeezing the wood. The soft spongy wood was used for shields, and the bark had various uses as fiber. The leaves could even be used as emergency fodder for drought-affected animal stock. Kurrajong has now been introduced as an ornamental tree in various countries, including South Africa, Louisiana, California, and the Mediterranean. This tree offers both practical uses and beauty to any landscape.
