[align=center]A few years ago I was traveling in Karachi, Pakistan in mid summer.
I came across a tree that had not a single leaf but was full of red hot big flowers all over it.
the trunk & branches*had almost a*fossil like appearance,(stone surface).
I would very much appreciate if you can help me find the name of that tree.[/align]
unfortunatly I dont have a picture of it but,* I know*that it*is not native of Pakistan.
Sounds like a lovely tree.* Got any pictures?
Pink Shaving Brush Tree aka Pseudobombax ellipticum
*aka Pseudobombax grandiflorum comes to mind but it's not native to the araa.
I thought of another tree, but it gets large thorny spines on the trunk and is a rare tree in Pakistan.
