The Silk Floss trees are in bloom right now and needless to say they are a sight to behold. I am reminded of another eye catching flowering tree, the Red Silk Cotton tree.
I cannot help but note how similar the two are!
Both shed their leaves and the leaf(less) tree can be seen in full bloom with vibrantly colored flowers. While Silk floss does so in late autumn through winter, the Red Cotton Silk does so in late winter through spring.
Both have pod like fruits that burst open to reveal what looks like cotton or kapok. This lesser quality cotton from both trees are used as filling for pillows and like. The Red Silk Cotton fibrous filling is known as “semul” while that of Silk Floss is called “reshami ruee”
Have you too noticed such similarities in “nature”?
