Chorisia In Bloom

You have seen several silk floss trees but none was in bloom. Here it is with beautiful pink flowers. Chorisia speciosa is its former scientific name and it is known now as Ceiba speciosa. Both sound just like Greek to me, but you got to admit, it is beautiful. Now I know why Coral Gables, the City Beautiful, planted several of them in various locations. In bloom, these trees are really pretty and their large flowers look very similar in shape and form to hibiscus.
