The unique Queensland Bottle Tree

The Queensland Bottle Tree, or narrow-leaved bottle tree, is native to (you guessed it) Queensland, Australia.  

The gorgeous tree sports a potbelly of sorts that gives it the look of a bottle. But its swollen trunks of water help the tree withstand temperatures of -17 degrees to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. 

The bottle tree is also known for its intriguing squiggly lined tree bark.

The trees contain flowers that grow into seed pods as well. It sheds leaves during a dry spell.
