Can somebody help me identify this tree found in Sicily?
It is a fairly big tree (8-10 m) with a broad canopy and trilobate leaves. Fruits are also shown in the picture.
I believe it is a Bottle Tree, Genus - Brachychiton. Possibly populneus, australis or rupestris. There are some good photos here BottleTree. More information can be found at Davesgarden on some of the different varieties.
Required, but never shown
