The Bottle Stick - CHORISIA CEIBA

Chorisia is a tree that has several denominations: painera, bottle stick, pot-bellied stick or bottle tree. Its scientific name is Ceiba speciosa, although it was previously classified as Chorisia speciosa.

Its origin is in South America (mainly in Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, Peru and Bolivia) and its family is made up of more than 200 species. Palo Borracho is common in warm climates and tropical or subtropical areas, so it is not recommended to plant it in cold places.
