 Cochlospermum vitifolium
Family: Cochlospermaceae
Buttercup tree, Mountain Cotton, Cotton-tree
Origin: South America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

A small tree, usually no more than 23 ft tall, usually with a leaning trunk and irregular branching. Crown is small, irregular, often with few leaves. The leaves are star-shaped, with pointed lobes. Flowers are large, bright yellow, with many yellow or orange stamen, very conspicuous during the December-January flowering period. Many trees are leafless when flowers are produced, but others have some leaves. Fruits are green pods filled with tiny seeds that have light fluff for wind transport. A widespread and common tree of pastures, farms, towns, and roadsides, throughout Panama. Never in the forest, even in natural tree-fall clearings, so it seldom appears in tree plots (which are nearly always in the forest). In the winter when it goes dormant, keep it a little dry. The double buttercup is much nicer and does not shower the lawn with kapok-like seeds and floss.
