Bombaceae > Adansonia gregorii var. ,

Adansonia gregorii, commonly known as boab, is a tree in the family Malvaceae. As with other baobabs, it is easily recognised by the swollen base of its trunk, which gives the tree a bottle-like appearance. Endemic to Australia, boab occurs in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and east into the Northern Territory.

Boab is a medium sized tree ranging in height from 5 to 15 meters, usually between 9 and 12 metres, with a broad bottle-shaped trunk.[1] Its trunk base may be extremely large; trunks with a diameter of over five metres have been recorded. Boab is deciduous, losing its leaves during the dry winter period and producing new leaves and large white flowers between December and May.[1]
