Q.Growing Princess Flower

Zone I don't know. | laelcali added on August 15, 2011 | Answered

Can I grow a Princess Flower as a small tree in my zone? I am wondering about the viability of growing a Princess Flower as a small (5-10 ft) tree in my small front yard. I live in Ventura, California (93001) and the plant would be north-facing and receive partial sun. Is the plant drought-tolerant? Also, how long do the blooms last? Thank you.

It sounds like it would be a good fit for what you are looking for. They are somewhat drought tolerant but it takes them a year or so to get that way. They can take partial sun, especially if your area is very warm.

It blooms year round, especially if regularly deadheaded.
