I'm always amazed that you seem to have a brom in bloom every month of the year. I need to increase my collection! I also noticed that ceiba bloom! (Or maybe it isn't, as the leaves look different from my floss-silk tree and actually the bloom looks a little different too. What variety is that?) I can't wait to see blooms on my floss-silk tree, which always occurs sometime late in October and throughout November. It is perhaps the most beautiful bloom on earth to me!

Floridagirl: The floss silk tree is C. speciosa (the common species). The flower colors and patterns vary from tree to tree, so yours could be different. I also have a hybrid one with yellow flowers!

I am amazed at your familiarity with all of them. Most of your flowers are with us too, others are in the wild and most in the gardens, but i am most captivated with your photography. They are really beautiful and artistic. thank you. Your site is a very big resource for us. I am ashamed because i am a horticulturist (Postharvest Physiology-though not practicing), but i don't know most of their names, and some forgotten. I should have known this site early on. If you did not sign in my follower corner, i will not be able to find this, a treasure! thanks.
