I have one in a pot about 2 feet tall. Should I plant it in the ground now or let it get a little taller and plant it next spring?

Howdy Darciwill-

I'd go ahead and put it in the ground. Down there in Odem, you can probably leave that plant out year round and not worry about it. Should do really well.

Good luck!

I have enjoyed this plant for quite a number of years, and I always have one coming up each spring from the ground (perhaps from seed). I live in the Texas Panhandle where there is a lot of wind besides hard freezes in the winter. The plant always seems to set alot of seeds when it does flower and the seeds are easy to germinate.

Thank you TexasTam. I also have some jacarandas, blue and yellow. If it is okay to plant the pride of barbados, then I am going to put all of them out. If they make it, I should have a really colorful yard.
Thanks again. I do so appreiate information from the experts.

This past year my wife and I moved into a home in the Clear Lake / Houston area. There was a Pride of Barbados that was already growing in the back patio area. What a beautiful plant. We enjoyed it all summer long. Recently it yielded about 45 seeds. During this Thanksgiving holiday I brought some seeds to my daughter who lives north of Panama City, Florida. We can't wait to see how well they do there. This is a beautiful plant and it will attract butterflies, humming birds and draw many comments from people who come to visit.
They are beautiful, hardy and drought resistant as far as we can tell.
