Planting and care
Caring for Gulmohar
- Flame trees perform best in large, open spaces and full sunlight.
Plant the tree in a big landscape where it has room to spread; the roots are sturdy enough to lift asphalt.
Also, keep in mind that the tree drops spent blooms and seed pods that require raking.
The flamboyant flame tree benefits from consistent moisture during the first growing season.
After that time, young trees appreciate watering once or twice per week during dry weather.
Well-established trees require very little supplemental irrigation. Delonix flame tree care is limited to an annual feeding in spring. Use a complete fertilizer with a ratio such as 8-4-12 or 7-3-7. Prune out damaged wood after blooming ends in late summer, beginning when the tree is about one year old. Avoid severe pruning, which can put a stop to blooming for as long as three years..Pruning should be used in the early years to create a stronger foundation since the branches tend to be weak.
