Generalities Umbrella-tree
The Umbrella-tree develops like a tree. The Umbrella-tree develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. Umbrella-tree isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 8 m in height.

Exposure Umbrella-treeSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Umbrella-tree in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Umbrella-tree plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; when putting the very young specimens, with a thin stem, in shelter, we should provide them with a high stake to keep them erect.

Watering Umbrella-treeTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 4-5 weeks . The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings.

Treatments Umbrella-tree
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Umbrella-tree
Let’s place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
