The Ceiba group are a collection of tropical trees in Amerrica, covering a wide area from Mexico and southern Florida to Brazil in South America, and including the Caribbean Islands. Some, like the Kapok tree - Ceiba pentandra, can reach above seventy metres tall. But most are known for their spectacular flowers which are produced during maturity.
