Description of the plant

This Fake Kapokier imitates everyone, but its beauty is real!

It imitates first of all the Baobabs with its bottle-shaped trunk and its parasol-like branches, it imitates the real Kapokier (Ceiba pentandra that we also offer) by producing a vegetable fiber, it also imitates the Hibiscus with its flower strongly resembling it.

But this perfect imitator knows how to take the best of each one: its pink flowering is sublime and extremely abundant, being able to cover whole grounds at the time of their fall, its trunk which covers itself with large thorns and takes its swollen form is completely remarkable, and the fiber which it produces was used not only to stuff the cushions and pillows, but also the life jackets by its excellent buoyancy.

Nicknamed "drunken stick" or "bottle tree", it grows fast, very fast and asks to arrive very fast at your home!

The best part?
It is cold hardy (-6°C) and could be the superstar of your garden !


Also known as : Palo Borracho, Toborochi, Paineira
