Ochroma pyramidale - seeds

Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliage

Balsa. This tree is notable for its unusual ecology as well as for its famous wood. This is the balsa of model-airplane fame, with extremely light, soft wood.
Leaves are very large. Balsa flowers are particularly unique and exotic. Held perfectly upright in the tree, unopened flowers strongly resemble velvety ice-creme cones. When opened, a fruit strongly resembles a large rabbit's foot.
