This plant is probably mislabeled. It is most likely a Brachychiton rupestris. Sterculia alata, more commonly Pterygota alata, has a tall, straight, cylindrical bole and large simple foliage. It is an Indian native. B. rupestris is from Australia. That said, it's a very nice Brachychiton in the photo!
