Uncarina roeoesliana is a much smaller growing species than its bigger cousins. It also flowers within 6 months of germination. It has soft, fuzzy leaves with smooth margins, and puts out beautiful, large, yellow flowers all over the tree from spring until winter, if you live in a warm climate. It is partially decidious-- it will lose most leaves in winter but smaller, immature leaves remain during dormancy; this is based on a Florida winter where it does not get below 45 degrees too often. The leaf-losing mechanism is based on sunlight, warmth, and water availability.
It is not cold hardy and needs protection from freezing and near freezing temps. This tree loves a lot of water and fertilizer during the growing season when the leaves are on the tree. During the dormant period, keep it relatively dry (water once every two weeks if the tree is leafless). This tree loves full sun all the time, and can tolerate it even when dormant. SEED GROWN!!! Growing it from seed is the best way; they grow SUPER fast and make huge caudexes!!! 1gallon pot size.
