vikingboybilly asks:

Hey, the bombax ceiba is the cotton tree; so what is cottonee, which is not a tree?

There is a tree called a cotton tree, but it’s not actually where cotton comes from, Billy.  Cotton comes from a small shrubby thing, and it grows on the plant in little balls to protect the seeds; that’s what Cottonee is.  

Lotta good stuff on Wikipedia, y’know.
