The Shaving Brush Tree (Pseudobombax ellipticum), has been widely
misidentified in India, for some unknown reason, as Pachira rosea.
Name plates in Nehru Park, Delhi and Lal Bagh Botanical Garden,
Bangalore, give the name Pachira rosea. Even the book "An Atlas Of
Major Flowering Trees In India" by M S Swaminathan has it wrong.
