Planting & Care
Step 1 Plant the silk floss tree in well-drained soil. The tree should be exposed to full sunlight.
Step 2 Water the silk floss tree regularly, but don t water excessively. The silk floss tree is drought-tolerant, and won t mind if the soil is kept on the dry side during the winter.

Sunlight: Full Sun

Water: Medium

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Remove weeds around the base of the tree, and avoid planting grass within the drip line (an imaginary line where water would drip from the outermost branches).
  • Grass and weeds will compete with the tree for moisture and nutrients in the soil.


Care:
  • Apply 3 to 4 inches of organic mulch around the base of the silk floss tree, but leave 6 to 8 inches uncovered around the trunk so the mulch doesn t mound against the trunk.
  • Organic mulches such as bark chips or dry leaves will retain moisture and deter weeds.

  • Cover young trees with a tree blanket if frost is expected.
  • Established silk floss trees can survive temperatures down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit, but only for short periods.
  • Young trees are more susceptible to cold and should be protected.
