The Shaving Brush Tree (Pseudobombax elipticum) is a tree that can reach up to 60 ft in height. The tree can be seen from Mexico to Guatemala and has densely hairy flowers with long narrow petals clustered at the ends of its branches before leaves appear. Coveted for it’s unique brush-like flowers in late winter (often February), the leaves are an attraction as well. Leaves are first bright red turning a fine green as they mature. Its branches are close to the base of the stem. It is a deciduous tree with succulent stems. Uses include firewood and wood for carving handicrafts. The tree is grown as an ornamental in Florida and Hawaii, and the attractive flowers are used to decorate homes and churches in Central America. Fantastic in full bloom ~ West Palm Beach, Florida
