FIRST BLOOM

Post  mike page on Mon Jun 21, 2010 6:22 pm

This is the first bloom on my Grewia. Many more to come. I'll post an image of the whole bonsai when more blooms are open. It's somewhat late this year as we had a cooler than normal spring.

I don't know how Grewia will do in your climate. It's an African native. Seems to do well in the SF Bay Area climate. I think it's a semi-tropical plant. Might suffer in a frost.

Do you know if it requires dormancy?? If not... I have a greenhouse it can overwinter in. We have a huge one at work... I overwintered a massive bougie there last winter. Smile

I'm sure if you can manage a boug successfully, the Grewia should be no problem. Mine acts somewhat like an azalea or a boug. Buds usually form in early spring, and by May are blooming. Not this year because of the cooler than normal spring.
