Fall Flowers. Floss-Silk tree (Ceiba speciosa, formerly Chorisia speciosa). The fruits are large, eight-inch-long, pear-shaped, woody capsules, filledwith silky, white, kapok-like floss and pea-like seeds. Floss from the seeds was used for stuffing pillows and thin strips of the bark have been used to make rope.
