The Yellowwood is a majestic slow-growing tree with simply appealing deep glossy green foliage that will add texture to a shelf or tabletop plant arrangement. 

These lovely trees adore bright filtered light to direct sunlight to thrive, making them ideal for a sunny indoor space or balcony/patio that needs a little green life. As slow growers, they will take their time to dominate a space, perfect for a compact or restricted spot.

Yellowwoods are also relatively low maintenance and are semi-Waterwise, making them the perfect gift for a beginner plant parent or someone who may periodically travel for business or leisure, and needs something that doesn't require a frequent watering schedule.

As they grow, your Yellowwood will find its own character and are often used for Bonsai because of this. Pair your Yellowwood with something Bold or even a naturalist palm leaf basket to allow this beauty to stand out in a crowd.

Please note: The Yellowwood is known to be toxic, keep out of reach of Pets & Children.

Follow these instructions to keep your yellowwood happy & healthy.

Water: Allow your Yellowwood to dry thoroughly between each watering and avoid waterlogged potting medium.
Light: Bright filtered light to direct sunlight is ideal to keep these plants thriving.
Humidity: Average room humidity is fine, however, if you notice crisp leaf edges, place on a pebble tray.
ÔĽŅFertilize:¬†ÔĽŅ Feed once every 2 weeks during the growing season of Spring through Summer. No need to feed in Winter.
