Stakeing
I love this tree so much I now have 2!
Just a suggestion when planting the tree in the ground, make sure you stake it well. The roots are shallow and in a strong wind it will blow over.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cassia Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cassia Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Cassia Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cassia Tree again after the transplant is complete.

how much watering does a cassia tree require?
sabel on Aug 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This tree needs regular water (an inch a week) the first season or two until the roots are established. Once established this tree actually has the most spectacular bloom display (late spring/early summer) when it is fairly dry. The rest of the year, it has average moisture needs, but requires good drainage.
how long do the flowers stay ?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It blooms over a long period in late spring to early summer.
Does it shed leaves?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Cassia Tree sheds old leaves, and can shed leaves in the winter if it gets too cold.

Deer are a problem in our area. Do deer like them?
