Dwarf Poinciana

This large shrub/small tree has flowers that resemble a Royal Poinciana tree with the advantage of a smaller size. The Royal Poinciana, considered by some the most beautiful flowering tree in the world, is large and sometimes reach 30' in height with 50' spread. This makes this Caesalpinia perfect for smaller yards where space is limited.

It grows in full to partial sun. Provide average water and fertilizer during the growing season. Keep a little drier during the winter, when the plant can loose most of its leaves.

It is quite drought tolerant when established.

It can reach 10'-12' in height and will bloom most of the time during warm weather.

The Dwarf Poinciana will bloom in a 10"pot and can be kept small.

If you choose you can trim it back, do so during the winter right before the plant resprouts in Feb/March.

The plant should survive temperatures in the high 20°s and perhaps even lowers with adequate protection.

As long as the temperatures doesn't go too much in the 20°s, the plant should be kept outside.

This plant can be grown in pots, but it will perform a lot better if eventually planted in the ground.
