Price: $10.00

The famous Mexican "Silk Floss Tree" makes a handsome potted caudiform subject with emerging red leaves handsomely designed; planted outside in the tropics this thick trunked tree rapidly develops considerable stature, displaying bundles of rose pink "Shaving Brush" silky stamens. Excellent indoors for those of us not gardening in the tropics. Also listed in some sources as Pseudobombax elipticum. The size of the plants we have right now are larger than those we offered last year. The bases have already swollen and resemble small bowling pins. Ask about even larger sizes that we sometimes have.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
