Pride of Barbados Not Blooming
I got a container Pride of Barbados last year. I am in Dallas. We had a hard winter. I had it covered for part of it but then gave up and just mulched it real good. It survived. It looks healthy and is over two feet tall and about 3 feet wide, but it is now mid-July and it has not bloomed or made seed pods. Last year when I had it, it had a couple of seed pods and was blooming (orange). I have put Callaway's fertilizer pellets for blooming plants on the soil and watering it daily. Does it take some special fertilizer to bloom or something? I know I am a bit far north to keep these in optimum health.
