|Not sure which botanical specimen. |
I had this one and lost it to a freeze. My friend has the same one, but it's protected up near the house.

|It's likely a Ceiba pentandra (which will eventually get huge - and when I say huge I mean it could eat the house ) or a Ceiba cross.|

|Thanks, Hetty. I think mine died from too little water. I'm going to try to find another and take better care of it. One of the men in our club has one that's about 25-30 years old and its trunk's not very big, maybe the size of a pecan tree. The Texas sun and alkaline soil may keep it at bay.|
