Discuss Fremontodendron 'California Glory' (Flannel bush 'California Glory') with other Shoot members.
I have a 3 year old Flannel Bush, about 9 feet tall. It was doing well until late last summer when it turned brown. 6 months later, it is still brown but it does have a few green, new leaves.
Has it gone through some kind of dormant period that it will come out of?
Hi, I have a small planter (1.4m x 0.3 x 0.3) I planed a Flannel Flower (Fremontodendron) this year. It has grown very fast and is now about two metres high. It has reached the top of a wall mounted trellis and I cant let it get any bigger. It has several side shoots that I have secured back to the trellis.
What is the best way to prune this plant?
"Fantastic job. Rarely have I come across such a useful, and user friendly, site."
