I need some help with kapok tree.
It started CA, I've loved these trees since the 80's. Then I found a pod at a golf course. And took the seeds home and planted them (12). Of course they all sprouted. Well, now I have only one left, its over 15 yrs old and has grown in a pot and is about 8.5 ft. Would like to put it in the ground. But now I now live in TX in 8b area. Any suggestions? PS, also have a Plumaria thats 7 ft. (Yellow blooms).
