HUGE RARE Variegated Kapok Tree (ceiba pentandra variegata)

RARE Variegated Kapok Tree (ceiba pentandra variegata) – This highly variegated tree is capable of reaching massive heights over 50 feet at maturity. Known to be a super fast-growing tree, it can put on 40 inches or more in a growing season for the first 10 years, then slows down considerably to build more girth and bulk in subsequent years. The fresh white wood is extremely tender but slowly hardens with the trunk turning a silvery grey. Medium sized palmed leaves are 6 – 7 inches and glossy green with white or yellow variegation. Flowers are heavily scented, nocturnal bloomers with nectar, pollination is performed by bats, moths and bees and bloom in winter when the tree has lost its foliage. This tree is stunning specimen plant to add to your collection. Adequate and regular watering and lots of sun are all this tree truly wants to be happy. Trimmed to 36″ to facilitate shipping.
Pot Size: 7"x2"x2" Round
