Hi Pravin,
Sending you a similar picture of a Bombax ceiba
with yellow flowers taken on Tulsi road in the
Borivali National Park in Feb 2007.
A pink flowering variety which has longer petals
and pods called Bombax insigne also exists.
Regards,
Neil.

Dear Dr Phadke,
 
1) We have a yellow flower tree in Katraj Ghat known as Divyachi Phule (Lamp Flower) is it same as this?
That fowers this month only. Gives deep vilet fruits of brinjal (Vange) type and has cotton.
 
2)Pink silk cotton is in large numbers in Delhi
 
3) Singapur silk cotton tree has small lemon colored flowers, grows very fast and the bark remains green. The cotton can be easily harvested as potd dont open immidiately

Hai Neil,
As far as I know it, B cieba has dark crimson flowers while Bombax insigne has yellow/cream flowers.

Hi Gopan,
'Lutea' is the term generally used to describe the
yellow-flowering variety of a species, but in Bombax
insigne the flowers can be either white, pink or even
scarlet.
With regards,
Neil Soares.

B. ceiba has both colours - red / pinkish red and yellow. Yellow is not very common, only few trees can be seen at select localities. We have spotted one near Andhra lake. ref to photo by Pravin. - Sawar or yellow silk cotton tree.
B. insigne has yellow, cream, red & pink flowers as seen in different localities. But it flowers before B ceiba somewhere in December - Jan and is uncommon. Photo sent by Neil is B. insigne ie Dev sawar.
Cochlospermum religiosum (In Marathi Sonsawar or Ganer) is different than both above. Sent by Satish Phadke.
