RE: plant ID please

Hi! I think you might get an answer more quickly on the name that plant forum. Do you know if it is edible, or ornamental?

RE: plant ID please

It's a Kurrajong, Brachychiton species but not really sure which species. Probably B. acerifolius. The leaves on those plants are only juvenile so could change as the the plants get older. B. acerifolius is commonly called Illawarra Flame Tree. Brachychiton species are collectively called Kurrajongs. You need to be careful with the hairs around the seeds, they can do damage if inhaled or get in your eyes.

RE: plant ID please

Thank you Sir, for identifying and explaining
about the plant.
I really appreciate your kindness.
