Default The Drunken Something-or-Other Tree

The correct name of this tree is the Floss Silk tree (ceiba speciosa). It's from South America. Because of its weak root system, it topples in heavy wind and storms, so it's also called the palo borracho, or "drunken tree" in Spanish.

Thank you for clarifying that Judy. I had visions of me going to the local tree nursery and asking for the "Drunken Something-or-Other Tree" and having them look at me like I was a Drunken Something or Other!
