I hunted for this tree high and low from the plant market for HortPark previously but it was never meant to be then.

Now, I am so happy to see the beautiful pink flowers of this thorny Silk Floss Tree (scientific name: Ceiba speciosa; synonym: Chorisia speciosa). Even the honey bees dig it so much. Unfortunately, no matter how much I love it, I will never hug it.
