Pride of Barbados plants produce 8- to 10-inch long clusters of red and orange flowers.

Pride of Barbados plants (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) are also known as peacock flowers, dwarf poincianas and red bird-of-paradise.

They are hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture hardiness zones 8 to 11. In hot tropical climates they are evergreen but, in zone 9 Mediterranean climates, they are deciduous. In zone 8, frost kills the stems of the plant to the ground, but they return each spring.

They grow between 8 and 20 feet tall, depending on the climate. Proper care of this plant begins with proper planting.

Soil
The soil for Pride of Barbados plants does not have to be especially fertile or high in organic matter. Poor sandy soils are fine for this plant. Soil pH can be acidic, neutral or alkaline. Good drainage is extremely important, though. The water must drain quickly away from the root zone. Where the soil is heavy clay and drains very slowly, consider growing the tree in a container or making a raised planting site. Either soil or peat-based potting mixes are fine for these plants as long as they contain sand, perlite and vermiculite to provide fast drainage. A 16-inch diameter by 16-inch deep container with drain holes in the bottom is suitable.

Sunlight
Pride of Barbados plants need a minimum of six to eight hours of direct sunlight each day. They grow successfully with as little as two hours of direct sunlight; however, they grow best and bloom more profusely in full sun. Container-grown plants should be placed in the same sunlight exposure as those grown in the ground. If a container-grown plant is moved indoors for the winter, place it by a window where it will receive direct sunlight.

Water
Pride of Barbados plants should be watered deeply once or twice each week for the first year or two after planting. Once the plants become well established, they are highly drought-tolerant and should not need supplemental water but, for best growth and blooming, water them during prolonged droughts. Deep watering encourages the plant to send roots deeper into the soil, resulting in better drought tolerance. Apply the water on the soil from 6 to 12 inches away from the stems to the drip-line below the outer edge of the branches. Container-grown plants need water once or twice each week throughout the spring, summer and fall but need slightly drier soil through the winter.

Mulch
Organic mulch should be spread around Pride of Barbados plants when they are grown in the landscape. It should be 2 to 3 inches deep and cover the entire root zone. Keeping the mulch 6 inches away from the stems or trunk will help prevent damage to the bark from excessive, prolonged exposure to moisture.

Fertilizer and Pruning
In early spring beginning the year after it is planted, it can be given nitrogen fertilizer diluted to half-strength to give it a boost. It is not ordinarily necessary, however, unless the soil is nutrient-poor. Always apply fertilizer immediately after a good rain or watering, never to dry soil or potting mix. Between October and the end of December, prune the branches back by 1 1/2 to 2 feet.

Within the USDA Zones of 8 – 11, Pride of Barbados dies to the ground following frost or freezing temperatures, but in zone 8B, at least, it comes back reliable, albeit late, in middle spring.

Don’t give up on it! Pride of Barbados has survived temperatures as low as 18 F.

It can be grown as an annual in colder climates. Even under frost free conditions, Pride of Barbados may lose its leaves when temperatures drop into the 40’s.

Pride of Barbados is easy to start from seeds. Germination will be speeded up if the seeds are nicked with a file before planting. Under good growing conditions,

Pride of Barbados will self sow and may even become weedy.
