Bombax ceibu tree
Well over ten years ago I sent away for some Bombax ceibu seeds. (What was I thinking?) The strongest grower soon out grew every pot it was planted in. Finally I planted it in the ground in front of my house. Now its really huge. But it never flowers.
Is my warm season too short for it to develop flowers? I have about 7 months of 50 degree or above night time lows. I`m about 10 miles inland from the Pacific in south Orange County in CA.
Anyone else growing one in southern CA?
Here`s a photo of the tree:
Here`s the trunk (sorry about the angle. Its surrounded by rose bushes.):
