Notes:

Found on a large tree in Bradenton, FL in February 2018. Flower is large as can be seen by the hand holding it. 5 petals – kind of waxy feeling. The flower came from a pod. I was thinking it was a red magnolia blossom — but not finding pictures on the web that match this one. Thank you — Brenda

    Maybe silk one of the Bombax species (silk cotton tree), probably B. ceiba (?). Check out the included link below for more information. Best wishes! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombax
