Planting and care

Plants do not thrive in Zones 9 to 10 without a period of refrigeration; they need a cold, dormant period. Select a site with soil that drains well. How can you tell? After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential.

Sunlight: full sun
Soil: Succeeds in any moderately fertile, well-drained soil.
It grows on rich clay soils and poor sandy soils.
Succeeds with a pH in the range 4.5 - 8.7.
It requires a position in full sun.
Water: Watering might be necessary in the dry season for the first two years.
Temperature: 15 to 28°C
Fertilizer: apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Caesalpinia coriaria

    Diligently water your plants. Soak the entire root zone at least twice a week in dry summer weather. Avoid frequent shallow sprinklings, which wont reach the deeper roots and may encourage fungus. Plants do best with 90 inches of rain per year, so unless you live in a rain forest, water regularly.
