Silk floss tree is known for its beautiful flowers, large seedpods with a silky, cottony substance (kapok) within, and large thorns that grow from the greenish bark of the trunk protecting the trunk and limbs.

  1. Wow, what a tree, I clicked on the link and the tree in full bloom is amazing. I have never seen anything like it. I love learning and seeing new things. Like all the different kind of birds, fish, trees and flowers, there is always something one has never seen or heard of. Great information.

  2. Yikes, but fascinating!
    I’ve met some people like that tree…thorny.
    But, when I take the time to look, there is often beauty behind the thorns…just like there is beauty in the Silk Floss tree!
    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…Thank you, Rupali, for showing me things I will probably never get to see in my lifetime. You bring joy, beauty, learning, kindness, wisdom, encouragement and so much more to my life! 🙂
