How Long for Ylang Ylang to Flower
« on: November 09, 2018, 12:24:20 AM »
I have a ylang ylang tree planted that is roughly 8 feet tall and wide and was hoping it would flower this year.  I seems very healthy and as we head into winter and cooler weather I'm bummed that it'll be at least another year until it flowers.  Does anyone know generally how long these trees take to flower?  This tree was a seedling and was not grafted.  Info on the internet is hard to find.

My seedlings have been in the ground over six years and one is flowering now. All three trees are maybe five or six meters tall. Pretty trees!

I have one that is about three years old and flowered for its first time this year and still going.  The tree is about 5' tall.

I was delighted to get those first fragrant blossoms!
