Kapok tree

Kapok Tree – rare exotic beauty in Saint Petersburg, Florida

It is spring time and the few kapok trees in St Peterburg are full of blossom.

These rare exotic tropical trees are really spectacular with their huge beautiful red flowers. The leaves are deciduous in winter. Red flowers with 5 petals are born between January and March before the green leaves develop. The flowers mature into small husks containing fibres, similar to cotton.
