Easy Tropical Growth and Unbeatable Color
Why Pink Trumpet Trees?
Add a gorgeous, tropical specimen tree to your landscape with the Pink Trumpet Tree. The Pink Trumpet, or Tabebuia heterophylla, is a long-lived tree with a neat, pyramidal habit and a spectacular display of bright pink blooms.
The Pink Trumpet adds unbeatable color to warm-weather landscapes, with a carpet of showy pink flowers that bloom from spring through summer, covering the tree. Vibrant, bell-shaped flowers are offset by warm, sunny-yellow centers. And while this semi-evergreen maintains its glossy foliage for most of the year, it will drop its leaves briefly before flowering.
And while this tree loves the warmth and humidity of tropical climates, it's low-maintenance and easy to grow. It's tolerant of nearly any well-draining soil, with impressive resistance to drought and urban conditions. Live in a cooler climate? No problem. Just plant your Pink Trumpet Tree in a container and overwinter it indoors.
A moderate grower, the Pink Trumpet Tree perfect for planting in tough areas with limited space, including along streets or close to driveways. It will also thrive in containers, adding vibrant color to patios and porches!

Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Pink Trumpet Tree is a full sun lover (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) that prefers well-drained soil - however, it can tolerate a range of different soil conditions. It's also a tropical tree, so it will thrive in zones 10-11.
Plant your Pink Trumpet Tree in a hole that is twice the width of the root ball, and just as deep. Place your tree and begin backfilling the hole, tamping down as you go to prevent air pockets. Place a thick layer of mulch over the planting area to protect the roots from fluctuating temperatures, as well as help the tree to conserve water. Finally, water the tree well to saturate the entire planting area.
If you live outside growing zones 10-11, you can plant your Pink Trumpet Tree in a container, moving it indoors when temperatures drop to 50 degrees. Select a container 1-2 sizes larger than its shipped container, place your plant, and backfill with potting mix.
2. Watering: Your Pink Trumpet Tree will exhibit impressive drought tolerance once established. While establishing, water once or twice weekly. Once established, the trees will only need water during times of extreme drought. Water container-planted Pink Trumpet Trees more regularly.
3. Fertilizing: Pink Trumpet Trees need very little fertilizer, but if you want to speed up growth, you can use a well balanced, slow-release formula, such a 10-10-10, in early spring.
4. Pruning: Your Pink Trumpet Tree will naturally grow into a neat, pyramidal form. However, you can prune to encourage high, arching branches by removing lower, drooping branches.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
