Family: Malvaceae ssf. Dombeyoideae
Dombea, Tropical Hydrangea
Origin: Africa, Madagarcar
large shrub 5-10 ftsmall tree 10-20 ftfull sunmoderate waterpink flowersfragrantincuded in CD catalog

Dombeya hybrids. Deep pink flowers up to 1.5 inches across subtended by densely pubescent bracts 2.5 inches long. This is a fast growing medium size tree. It can be grown as a shrub too. As a tree it can grow to 15 ft in height but it can be kept smaller with some trimming. Trimming should be done after the flowers are gone in the spring until mid September. The old flowers remain on the plant for a long time. Cleaning up the dry flower heads is advisable for a neat appearance. You can trim it pretty much as far back as is necessary without deforming the tree. The plant produces fragrant flowers that last for over 1 month. It is a strong grower and even though it is possible to grow it in a container for many years. Flowers autumn to spring. In winter, flowers cover the whole big shrub - very inmpressive! Another cultivar - Dombeya x cayeuxii -probably a garden hybrid of Dombeya burgessiae X Dombeya wallichii. The genus Dombeya is named after Joseph Dombey, an 18th-century French botanist, doctor, and explorer. The species is named after Henri Cayeux, a horticulturist, responsible for many hybrids and new cultivars, who is also supposed to have created this one.
