Dear All,
I photographed this tree in Delhi.
I think this flower colour was part of some discussion on the group few days back.
Sorry for late posting.

I think it's Bombax ceiba. From Indiantreepix Database:
Bombax ceiba (B. malabaricum, Salmalia malabarica) Bombacaceae Semal, Red silk cotton, Shembal, Semur in Feb.'08 near Badalapur, Maharastra, in Mumbai & near Pune; in Bassein fort - Vasai, District Thane on 17th and 24th February 2008; begun flowering in Nagpur; in full bloom on 24/2/08 at Moodlu Koppal, Mysore district; in Delhi- first noted in 2nd week of Feb.; in March' 08  - Juhu Scheme (Mumbai); Sanjay Gandhi National Park(SGNP) (Borivali & Thane) Maharashtra- 14/3/08; in March-2006- Kolkata;  Beautiful Trees & Shrubs of Calcutta by Sh. R.K. Chakraverty & S.K.Jain states that flowering occurs in early spring (Feb.- March).  Trees of Delhi states  that though flower buds appear long before, first flowers wink on in Feb.; prime time in Delhi is early to mid March. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombax_ceiba Bombax ceiba (Semal/ Cotton tree or tree cotton/ Bombax/ Red Silk Cotton) - indiantreepix | Google Groups Bombax ceiba **** - indiantreepix | Google Groups Bombax Malabaricum -Id Confirmation-08052008Raghu1 - indiantreepix | Google Groups Bombax ceiba - Google Image Search is this silk cotton? - indiantreepix | Google Groups Which tree - indiantreepix | Google Groups
