Fall show-off blooms in Chino Hills
With thousands of flowers shaped like hibiscus, a pink silk floss tree in full bloom is an attention-getter at a home on Challis Drive, between Valle Vista Drive and Aspen Lane in Chino Hills.
The drought-tolerant tree was identified for the Champion by Sean O’Connor, Chino Hills maintenance and operations manager and a certified arborist. He said the tree blooms from late summer through early fall in southern California after losing its leaves.
The pink silk floss is native to tropical forests of South America, where it is called “palo borracho,” which means “drunken stick.” It is known for its large seed pods that contain a cottony fiber.
Mr. O’Connor said the oldest and largest pink silk floss in the United States is on the grounds of the Hotel Bel-Air in west Los Angeles, standing 90 feet with a trunk 13 feet in circumference.
