    A definite “wow-factor” tree.

    The Silk Floss tree makes a statement in all aspects – bark, shape, flowers! The spikey bark will keep all animals at bay and the bulging trunk is telling of its Baobab family heritage. Then the flowers will be the talk of the town every autumn when it displays an abundance of pink before the winter. Every little girls’ dream, right?

    Hardy and fast-growing, this beauty sells out fast.
