"finally"

pcputOctober 4, 2013

Look what I found! My pudica finally has an inflo. You can see how tall it is by the 6' stockade fence. I've threaten to cut the top off each fall but by the time spring comes I think this will be the year for an inflo. So this fall I just said I've had it and in spring it gets cut. It must have decided I meant it this time. It might not make it to bloom, but then it is one that keeps going all winter, but at least it will branch now. I might still cut it down in spring and root the top.

Woohoo Peg! Lets hope for more hot weather. Maybe a certain someone nearby might let it reside in the greenhouse so it can bloom.

Yes!! Your patience has paid off, Peg! I bet your pruning fingers were itching to take that thing down, LOL. The foliage is so pretty, too, it's a shame they can take so long before they branch.

How exciting for you Peg! I do not have pudica but hear that they are great bloomers! Is pudica easy to overwinter while blooming in the house? Seems like I read that somewhere.

I think these trees love lots sun and once they bloom they bloom crazy. I bought 2 from Lowes this Feb they were less than 3 feet tall. I planted them to the ground. They started blooming in April and non stop growing. Now is about 6-7 feet tall and still growing and blooming. I've never had pudica before. I don't want them to be too tall. Any advise? I appreciate it.
