Wouldn't have thought it would ever grow in UK...unless in a huge greenhouse such as Kew.
Quote wiki...."Brachychiton acerifolius, commonly known as the Illawarra flame tree, is a large tree of the family Malvaceae native to subtropical regions on the east coast of Australia. It is famous for the bright red bell-shaped flowers that often cover the whole tree when it is leafless. Along with other members of the genus Brachychiton, it is commonly referred to as a Kurrajong".
Sorry made a hash of that.
Cannot edit !
