This tree has a distinctively swollen trunk base - even when young. The flowers are smaller than in the chestnut and are pure white with no red on the stamens. They are also very fragrant with a sort of vanilla aroma. A medium height specimen tree with attractive foliage. Fruits are much smaller than in P. aqautica, and elongated rather than round. The allegedly edible seeds are only about 1 inch long. Grow in full sun for best flower production.
Also placed in Malvaceae ssf. Bombacoideae.
