Balsa Wood Tree (ochroma pyramidale)

Quick Growing, Light Weight Tree! Balsa trees are known to grow at an extremely rapid rate of up to 90 feet in 10 to 12 years. It is this rapid growth that helps to account for the light nature of the wood. This incredible tree usually begins flowering around year 3 and produces large flowers that typically open for the evening pollinators and offers up a small 1 inch deep, pool of nectar as enticement. Very soft and extremely light, the wood of the tree has a course grain and large cells for transpiring vast amounts of water up and down the trunk. What an amazing tree and probably among our top 10 favorites for the tropical plant collector.
