This is a tree that I have been trying to grow in my backyard in Phoenix for a while. They do okay in the spring, and start losing their leaves in July, barely surviving August and dying in September. The pattern has been repeated 3 years in a row, and there doesn't seem to be any difference between a full sun and a full shade exposure. I do want a Capulin Cherry tree, maybe this time (2000) I will plant it in half shade, in September with a lot of mulch and give it a last try.
We do get a small commission out of these sponsors that helps financing the website. Let us know if you are satisfied or dissatisfied of their services, since obviously we are trying to advertise only for reputable garden supply companies. They might be helpful to get plants not generally available at the local garden center, getting a new and unusual gardening tool or get a discount Better Homes and Gardens magazine subscription.
Desert-Tropicals is dedicated to provide gardening advice, gardening ideas, and information about flower of all kind for landscape and collections. We try to check carefully the identification of the plants on the illustrations as well as the other information from the page, but occasionally errors do occur. if you notice anything that needs to be changed please contact us. Thanks.
