Family: Cochlospermaceae
Kapok
Origin: Australia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.DeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

After the yellow flowers are pollinated, large, globular, green, papery fruit develop, which eventually turn brown and split along the seams to release their seed. The small black seeds are woven in a dense mat of fine silky hairs.

The flowers are edible raw and are quite pleasant. The tap root of young plants is also edible when roasted and has moderate levels of most nutrients. The same is true of the Northern Territory species, whose root is also pounded and used extensively as medicine for sores.

Cochlospermum gillivraei is a small tree, 3 to 12 metres in height, which is deciduous in the dry season. The bright yellow flowers appear before the new leaves. Seeds are borne in egg-shaped capsules,about 8 cm long, which split open when ripe to release black seeds embedded in a cotton-like fibre.

In cultivation the plant needs well drained soils and a sunny position.

Kapok may be propagated from seed.

Cochlospermum vitifolium, Buttercup tree, Mountain Cotton, Cotton-tree

Click to see full-size image 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.
