Hi friends,
 
Photographed in March-2006.
 
Bombax ceiba
 
Also known as Semal.  Simul in Bengali.
 
Stems are straight, soft (younger ones are with prickels on it).
 
Its leaves are deciduous.
 
Blooming time : Spring.
 
Flowers are popular ingredient for chinese tea. 
 
I think there is a white variety of it, I'll post  it's  photograph later. 
 
Thanks,
