Flora of Haryana- Ceiba insignis from Kaithal: This is Ceiba insignis (Kunth) P.E.Gibbs & Semir photographed on December 12, 2011 from Kurukshetra road, Kaithal. This is quite rare in Haryana (in fact, I have seen this in flowering for the first time). The tree is present on a private property, was not accessible and may not be available next time as this is adjoining entry gate of the building to be reconstructed soon. I hope this survives….
Kindly validate the id.
