This Quesnelia will grow in full sun to full shade. They look best with morning or afternoon sun, and shade during the middle of the day. Plants grow about 18 inches tall, with solid green leaves that are tipped by a sharp spine. Long-lasting, cold-hardy, and beautiful! What more could you ask for?
Buy this plant!
This is a Chorisia (now Ceiba) hybrid combining C. speciosa, C. chodatii, and C. insignis. The flowers open bright yellow, then fade to a cream color with maroon eye in the center. They seem to have a much longer bloom period than the pink species. The yellow is still blooming in January.
