Thanks. Brachychiton species tend to loose most of their leaves just before they bloom.

So, it is winter flowering tree, right? And does it have a nice characteristics of the trunk? It is called lace-bark tree.

Some bloom in winter. Brachychiton is very interesting. Many species can bloom almost any time of the year. They're strange trees.

Here's some of my Brachychiton pics I think you'll enjoy.

Yes, they're very popular attractive trees. They're widely used as street trees here in San Diego.
