My Starburst tree is in full bloom, technically a shrub, my is already fully-grown. This plant is fabulous for tropical gardens, it has year-round color, besides the spectacular flowers, the leaves are olive green on top and purple on bottom.
This plant is low maintenance, fast growing; the flowers appear in late winter (January to March) and last around six weeks.
The only negative about this plant is that it sends up suckers everywhere and it can be a nuisance. The plant above is in my neighbors yard and it was a sucker from my plant.
