Dombeya elegans (Pink Shrub Dombeya) - A evergreen large shrub 6 to 12 feet tall that blooms over a long period from spring to fall with bright pink clusters of flowers. Plant in full sun to part shade and irrigate occasionally. Hardy to 20-25 F. We received this plant as Dombeya elegans which some believe may hail from the Island of Reunion in the Mascarene Islands but others consider it a synonym of the South African (Swaziland, Zululand, Natal) plant, Dombeya burgessiae Gerrard ex Harv. A plant of Dombeya elegans at Madame Ganna Walska Lotusland is planted along a north facing wall and bloomes well while only getting mostly indirect sun in winter.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Dombeya elegans.
