Pink Blooms and Tropical Growth Through Autumn

Why Pink Silk Floss Trees?
A uniform silhouette sprouts green limbs for a tropical-inspired, ultra-healthy look, making the Pink Silk Floss Tree second to none. But it truly wows with gorgeous, funnel-shaped and Hibiscus-like pink blooms that cover the canopy during the autumn months, from October to November.

Imagine stunning, one-of-a-kind summer color that emerges in fall. The florals are followed up woody, pear-shaped seed pods containing silken floss. Living up to its name, this South America native’s floss was traditionally used for jackets, pillows and rope.

Why is Better
The best part about the Pink Silk Floss Tree? For starters, though it’s initially a fast grower, its growth slows as it matures, so it’s more manageable for you. Whether it’s used along highways, residential areas or as a focal point shade tree in your backyard, the Pink Silk Floss is adaptable and versatile. But the top benefit is the fact that it’s planted, monitored and shipped with the utmost care, so it arrives ready to grow for you.

We’ve done the hard work long before the Pink Silk Floss arrives to your door, meaning so hassle for you. It doesn’t get much simpler than a ready-made, great-looking plant! Get a Pink Silk Floss Tree of your own – see what all the hype’s about!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Start by selecting a suitable location for your Pink Silk Floss Tree. It’s important to plan your planting so that it’s at least 15 feet from eaves and foot traffic. The Pink Silk thrives in full sun, 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day, and well-drained but moistened soil. Once you’ve chosen your location, dig a hole that’s two to three times the size of your tree’s root ball, place the tree, back fill your soil and water the area to settle your Pink Silk’s roots.

2. Watering: Plan to water your Pink Silk Floss Tree about once a week until it gets established, with reduced bi-weekly watering in winter. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your Pink Silk’s surrounding soil, down to about 2 or 3 inches. If the soil here is dry, it’s time to water. After the first few years, rainfall should suffice for irrigating your tree.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Pink Silk Floss Tree with a well-balanced mix in spring and summer for the first few growing seasons.

Silk Floss Trees

The four silk trees I purchased, in two different sizes, arrived in excellent condition and have done well in the ground after planting. They arrived on time, as ordered, in excellent packing and protection. FastGrowingTrees has consistently provided us quality plants in good conditon, delivered on time in careful packing.
