How Fast Do Flamingo Trees Grow?
As we said above, flamingo trees will take about 4 years to grow to their maximum height. They will only reach this height if you prune them properly and regularly. The flamingo trees are quite easy to grow and also easy to control. You'll need to plant them in moist soil, but make sure it is well drained, whether you're growing it in a pot or straight in the ground.
How Do You Take Care Of A Flamingo Tree?
We want you to be successful with your flamingo tree, so we're giving you our best tips on how to look after a flamingo tree! It's best to grow your flamingo tree in well-drained moist soil, and plant it in full sun as these plants thrive in the sunshine. It's up to you if you want to plant your tree in a pot or plant it straight in the ground, as the flamingo tree will grow well in both locations. Prune your tree hard in winter and lightly in summer if necessary.
Do Flamingo Trees Lose Their Leaves?
Yes, is the short answer. Your flamingo tree will lose its leaves in the autumn and leave your tree a gorgeous bronze and orange sort of colour. Once you prune it towards the end of winter, not long after you'll start seeing the lovely new leaves coming through ready for spring and summer!
When Should I Prune My Flamingo Tree?
You should prune your flamingo tree hard in the winter and remove all dead and damaged leaves and branches and any branches that are growing the wrong way, ready for the upcoming season when your beautiful tree will come alive again! You can also do a light pruning in the summer if you need to. Pruning encourages new foliage growth and lots of the pretty pink colours we know you'll be looking forward to seeing!
