Pride of Dominica (sabinea carinalis)
I was visiting a nursery earlier this week and discovered this amazing shrub and I had an instant headache! I had to have this plant! My breath got short and my heart was racing as I inquired about it. I was told it was called Pride of Dominica (sabinea carinalis). I found out that it was the national flower of Dominica and was propagated by seed. It grows on rocky scrub land by the seaside and requires very little care. It is a great plant for drought prone areas. I snapped up two of these and am carefully planning on where I am going to install them. This shrub or small tree grows to about 5-6 ft in height and about 5-6 ft wide. This will make a stunning conversation piece when in bloom.
