I don't have them on hand, but they're flowering here right now, so if you can be patient I can get them.

Bombax ceiba, Bombax speciosa, which species? There are about 8 here.

Hi Lorax,
How have you been?
Still didn't receive your envelope... :( .

8 species??? Beautiful!! Didn't know there are so many.
I got to know about this tree through a news article,
this one:

I tried to search on the net for more info about this tree, but I haven't found that much. So I don't know now what is the difference between the species.. :?
I can only find pics of different flowers of it, but no idea what species they are...

This beautiful Bombax Ceiba is at Marie Selby Botanical Garden in Sarasota, FL. It was the first time I saw this magnificent tree. It is a gorgeous and impressive tree.
