How long do the drunken parrot trees flower for?

    3 responses

ShortieD starts with ...
Hi there - my neighbour has a tree that suddenly all the lorakeets in the neighbourhood are very attracted to. It's just been the last week and half - they've been out there everyday making a racket. I think it's a drunken parrot tree. We've never had them there before (I've been here 5 years) and the tree has always been there but they've never flocked to it like this. Can someone tell me how long this tree flowers for? It's driving me crazy.

Cheers

Hi ShortieD, I found a reference here http://www.themorningbulletin.com.au/news/flush-of-colour-and-noise-gardening-lifestyle/1562790/ saying that 'The flowering period is from late September to early October ...'. So I'd guess it flowers for a couple of weeks?
Wonder if BBQ'd lorikeet could be a late Sept - early Oct delicacy?
Good luck. Hopefully it'll be over by the time you read this.

Saw this Drunken Parrot Tree in the gardens yesterday that was in full bloom. I'm growing a couple of these trees, Schotia brachypetala, that are about 7 or 8 years old and 5 metres high in full sun, but they have never flowered.

Would like to hear from those growing them how long they take to reach flowering age as I don't think mine should be much longer now. Thank you.
