White Floss Silk Tree
Deciduous, Evergreen, Trees
Native to South America. Heavy trunk is studded with thick spines; it is green in youth, turns gray with age. Leaves divided into spoon leaflets like fingers of a hand, drop during autumn flowering or whenever temperatures fall below 27°F/ –3°C. Large, showy flowers somewhat resemble narrow-petaled hibiscus blooms. Fast drainage and controlled watering are keys to success. Water established trees about once a month during growing season; ease off in late summer to encourage more flowers. Need little pruning except to remove wayward or dead growth.Ceiba insignis
