Planting & Care
You can plant them either in containers or in the ground where you want them to grow about ½ inch deep in moist soil. Keep soil moist but do not saturate. Answer: I recommend that you wait until after the first freeze and then cut the Pride of Barbados (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) back to the ground.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 30°F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:

  • The soil for Pride of Barbados plants does not have to be especially fertile or high in organic matter.
  • Poor sandy soils are fine for this plant.
  • Soil pH can be acidic, neutral or alkaline.
  • Good drainage is extremely important, though.
  • The water must drain quickly away from the root zone.

 


Care:

 

 

  • Pride of Barbados plants should be watered deeply once or twice each week for the first year or two after planting.
  • Once the plants become well established, they are highly drought-tolerant and should not need supplemental water but, for best growth and blooming, water them during prolonged droughts.

 


Special Feature:
Hedge, screen background. In Hawaii, flowers are sometimes used in leis.
