The Q&A Archives: Silk Floss Tree

Question: I planted a silk floss tree two years ago. It has grown tall but never bloomed. What can I do to make it bloom?
Regards, Myra Epstein

Answer: Chorisia speciosa or Floss-Silk Tree, grows fast but won't flower until it's 4-5 years of age. I suspect your tree is on the verge of being mature enough to flower, it will just take a little more time. Continue to give your tree TLC and it will reward you with spectacular blooms - when it's ready! Best wishes with your landscape!
