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.

Care:

  • The soil for Pride of Barbados plants does not have to be especially fertile or high in organic matter.

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.
