CHORISIA SPECIOSA PDF

Description[ edit ] The natural habitat of the silk floss tree is the north-east of Argentina , east of Bolivia , Paraguay , Uruguay and southern Brazil. It is resistant to drought and moderate cold. The trunk is also studded with thick, sharp conical prickles which deter wild animals from climbing the trees. In younger trees, the trunk is green due to its high chlorophyll content, which makes it capable of performing photosynthesis when leaves are absent; with age it turns to gray. The leaves are composed of five to seven long leaflets. The flowers are creamy-whitish in the center and pink towards the tips of their five petals.
