    theres is a type of tree that I have been curious for months and still i have not found the name . well today I went to knotts berry farm I found a million of them and some other plants I have unexpectedly see , i saw a live forever cactus with a huge flower stalk and a new plant called the orchid tree witch i will soon purchase but about the plant i was curios about . the description is the trunks has thorns , the flowers are pink , the seed pod looks likea huge acorn with powdery seeds , the trees are about 25 feet tall , its seems they live in dry soil , and the tree is green . sooner or lady i found the name of the plant labeled on one of the trees which said "mexican palo verde " so i reserched it and found out that still the plant looked much different because the tree i found on the internet has yellow flwoers and has a shorter trunk . please help me id this tree because i want to plant it at my house .

    sounds like a silk cotton tree or a relative of that.

    sorry , that is not the tree at all , it has to be ore smaller , greener , and no buttress roots .but when it makes seeds it has a thing that looks like a cacoon and it seems to be filled with cotton so you were kinda close .

    Hey goldtrap,

    What search engine are you using? Google image search is probably the best one around in regard to images.

    Hey goldtrap,

    carcinos is pretty close. This is probably it, the pink version. http://www.cuyamaca.net/oh170/Thumbn...a_speciosa.asp

    It grows very well in our area, I have a neighbor down the street who has one on his front lawn. I bet the squirrels stay away [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
