No I didn’t know they had a dwarf varsity I’ll take a pic of one across the street. No one has lived there for 2 yrs. so the only care this has had including water has been from Mother Nature so imagine if it was cared for. The seeds are from that bush @Moore.794

@moore.794 thank you! I can't recall if this is the plant I might have trouble growing. I recall something getting 15 feet tall, and there's no way I could overwinter something that big! 😉

Soak the seeds for 48 hours in "hand hot" (hot, but not too hot to touch) water. Pour off the water after 24 hours and refill with fresh "hand hot" water for the second half of the soaking. Then, sow seeds 1/4 inch deep in a well drained seeding mix. Keep moist but not wet and around 75-80 degrees.

The blooms of Pride of Barbados are incredible with terminal flower clusters showing an orange-red with a tinge of gold on the edges. Each flower is composed of five showy petals with very prominent six inch long red stamens.

Pride of Barbados is an evergreen shrub or small tree in frost free climates, a deciduous shrub in zone 9, and a returning perennial in zone 8. In the tropics it gets 15-20′ tall and its ungainly, wide spreading branches can cover about the same width.

The cultivation of Pride of Barbados in San Antonio is usually a semi-dwarfed hardy perennial shrub to a typical size of 5-8′ tall and growing that large even after freezing to the ground the previous winter. (Is this what you're referring @moore.794 ?) The selection of Pride of Barbados that we desire here in San Antonio is a smaller dwarf compact selection named Dwarf Poinciana, Pride of Barbados.

Pride of Barbados flower lives up to its name with incredibly showy blossoms of orange and red. The flowers are bowl shaped, 2-3″ across, with five crinkled, unequal red and orange petals, and ten prominent bright red stamens that extend way beyond the corolla. The flowers are borne in terminal clusters 8-10″ tall throughout most of the year in tropical climates and in late summer and fall where frosts occur.

Pride of Barbados flowers benefit from pruning, and can be shaped to tree form or shrubby bush form. These plants prefer full sun to partial shade. Pride of Barbados flowers bloom best in full sun. Also, Pride of Barbados is considered drought tolerant once established.
