Tree Lily (Portlandia domingensis syn. Cubanola domingensis)
Tree Lily, or Cubanola as it’s often called, boasts 10” long whitish-green trumpets with an intense nighttime fragrance. The small, slow-growing shrub has silvery green leaves and it makes an ideal plant for container growing. Tree Lily grows well in partial sunlight, thereby freeing up full sunlight locations for other plants. It prefers partial sun or bright, indirect light and will bloom intermittently from spring through fall. Feed on a regular basis during the active growing season and prune after flowering to maintain shape and size. Starts to bloom when the plant is under 2’ tall.
Hardiness Zone 10

  1. Delightful plant. Fills up the whole front yard with it's fantastic aroma. Please note the added care instructions. Review by Andy
    How do you rate this product?

    I bought this plant 3 years ago, along with another variety of same species. (That variety even has bigger blooms). I have never been disappointed. I live in central Florida and so far this year, it has been a non-stop bloomer. (I currently have a dozen blooms open at once-the scent is heavenly, especially at night) I have it in a large 18" pot. In a partly sunny location. In the old care instructions that were on this site, it was suggested that the plant does not like an acid soil. And correct they were, I can attest to that. I fertilize it every other week in the summer with a bloom orientated type of fertilizer. (The type that instantly dissolves in water. Usually a tablespoon to a gallon of water.) But before I fertilize with that solution,, I sprinkle about a Tablespoon of Lime on top of the soil away from the trunk by about 2 inches. Then water it in with the flowering fertilizer. NOTE: Do not use the lime that you can find in a small bag, which are mostly made of oyster shells and very granular. Use the powder type lime that comes in a 50 pound bag and is used for lawns. (I'll probably never use it all, but the granular lime just does not cut it for this plant.) The type of lime (and quantity) is what makes all the difference in the world to this plant. This plant also does not seem to have any bug problems either. This plant is worth every penny that Logee's charges, and I can't praise it enough. I am tempted to (and most likely will) buy yet a 3rd plant, of this aroma powerhouse. I am so glad they have re-introduced it. Provided you are in Zone #9 ,or 10 or have a greenhouse, and have a somewhat green thumb, one can't go wrong. (Posted on 8/7/2018)
