The Silk Floss Tree

Hey, floss has many forms.
The silk floss tree is new to me.
There are some 60 ft specimens growing at the LA Natural History Museum.
Here's a small one I found with seed pods on a side street in Santa Monica.
 The pods on the trees ripen and open to form a ball of silky floss:
In the fibers are small brown seeds:

In a few months, I hope to show some pics of what the seedlings look like.
