Answer: The flowers are naturally wrinkled, like the petals of a poppy so I don't think it's a symptom of a problem. Pride of Barbados is very easy to grow in alkaline to acidic, well-drained soils. It is a fast growing, but short lived plant. 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. Yellowing leaves can indicate overwatering. Hope this information helps!
