Description:

Small shrub with fruits that contain seeds that are covered in wool. Don't think it is the native Gossypium, because the leaves do not match it. These were only just emerging and seemed to be simple and covered by dense silvery hairs, although this is not exact since the leaves were really only just emerging and very difficult to forecast exactly what they would look like when mature.
