Psuedobombax Ellipticum -- flowering height?

jimshyMay 22, 2008

Does anyone have a good guess as to how high/old these have to be before flowering -- I'm wondering if it's possible to flower one in a container/as a large bonsai?

Many thanks!

Jim

I have seen them bloom at about 3-4'. They were in a pot grown as a large bonsai. It looks like they were several years old from the size of the caudex.
