A Kulu tree (Sterculia urens), also known as The Ghost Tree, is a beautiful tree of central India with a white trunk and peeling papery skin. “It survives drought partly by going leafless and lying dormant for more than half the year making up for the loss through a green chlorophyll layer that lies just under the skin of its trunk.” : ‘Jungle Trees of Central India by Pradip Kishen'.
