Hong Kong Orchid Tree
|Description||Considered the most beautiful tree available, with exceptionally long-blooming, flamboyant, deep rose-red, orchid-shaped flowers that have a touch of white. The sterile flowers produce no seedpods. Develops as a tree with a rounded crown in warmer winter regions, more shrub-like in cooler winter regions. Provides stunning winter interest. Semi-evergreen.|
|Watering||Water deeply when soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Late Fall through Early Winter|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 20 ft. tall, 25 ft. wide.|
|Special Features||Easy Care|
|Flower Attributes||Showy Flowers|
|Design Ideas||Top-notch as a specimen tree in a garden focal point. Make it the centerpiece of a shrub collection. Blooms in December to April just after its leaves drop for a short period, so it's a standout in any garden.|
|Companion Plants||Agapanthus (Agapanthus); Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis); Foxtail Fern (Asparagus); Lilyturf (Liriope); Sago Palm (Cycas)|
|Care||Requires moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Protect from harsh drying winds, extreme heat, and hard freezes. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established water regularly to maintain moist but not soggy soil. Apply a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
|Lore||Does not produce unwanted seedlings, unlike the Purple Orchid Tree (B. purpurea).|
