  • Title:  Silk cotton tree flower
  • Description:  Silk cotton tree: The Latin name is Bombax Ceiba, and it is a popular ornamental tree found in East and South Asia. Bombax species are among the largest trees in their regions, reaching 30-40 m tall and up to 3 m trunk diameter. The leaves are dry-season deciduous, 30-50 cm across, palmate, with 5-9 leaflets. They bear red flowers between January and March, which mature into small husks containing a fibre, similar to kapok (Ceiba pentandra) and to cotton, though with shorter fibres than cotton, that does not lend itself to spinning, making it unusable as a textile product. They are also planted domestically and for reforestation of cleared areas.
