Acropogon bullatus is an attractive tree from New Caledonia in the Hibiscus family (Malvaceae). The genus Acropogon is only found on the remote Pacific island of New Caledonia. As a seedling it has deeply lobed leaves which quickly transform to entire leaves that have a cupped configuration. It grows as a narrow pole to about 15-20 feet then starts to branch and widen. This branching process can be hastened with pruning if desired, though the tree develops a very nice shape naturally. Flowers are attractive with red centers and yellow margins, but small and inconspicuous from a landscape perspective. It has been grown at Fairchild for nearly a decade and has withstood high winds, cold and drought with no problems.  Our oldest specimen has grown to approximately 25 feet. Prefers full to partial sun and well-draining soil. (Pot size: 1.5 gallon)
