Silk floss tree flower, pink and yellow
This is the flower of a silk floss tree, growing next to the mall in El Cajon, San Diego County, USA. The size is about 6 in/15 cm. The link to the Wikipedia article, in this paragraph, indicates that a tree may grow to 60 m/200 feet tall, and have several hundred pods. This tree was not that large. This is also known as a silk floss tree. I'm not sure if the green objects in the upper left are young fruit, or flower buds. I suspect the former.
I had originally identified this as kapok, Ceiba pentandra, but a commenter, below, says that it's Ceiba speciosa), the silk floss tree.
God willing, I expect to post additional photos of this, or similar trees, showing other aspects of them, over the next few days.
Thanks for viewing. Larger sizes, showing more detail, are available.
