Poinciana

    5 responses

Terry starts with ...
Non Flowering Poinciana.

Can anyone suggest a reason why this 16 year old, apparently healthy and of good size tree has not produced flowers ? Not one flower in 16 yrs.
The owner is very frustrated and awaits eagerly every year, but alas no flower.

Hi Terry, if it's down south - too cold maybe - but if it's Geraldton it should flower (if it gets plenty of sun?) Some folk use (spelling..?) cincturing the bark 2/3rds of the way around the tree to intiate flowering..?
Haven't tried it myself tho' - maybe someone else has other ideas (I notice they tend to flower the heaviest on the northern half of the tree here too..)

Hi we live in Hillars Perth and there are two growing in this suburb one lady told me hers took ages to flower then a car hit it ( it is on the verge )then it started flowering. Maybe you need to hit it with the back of an axe to shock it.
