Welcome Spring with Sunny, Tropical Blooms!
Why Yellow Trumpet Trees?
A native of South America, the flowering Yellow Trumpet Tree makes an excellent landscape specimen or patio tree. With bright yellow blooms atop a signature asymmetrical form, this easy-growing tree adds tropical color to even the toughest landscape areas.
The Yellow Trumpet Tree, or Tabebuia caraiba, blooms in early spring with clusters of trumpet-shaped golden-yellow flowers. The flowers are some of the first to welcome spring - and they attract bees, hummingbirds, and other insects to your garden. And while this semi-evergreen tree will maintain its attractive, silvery foliage for most of the year, it will drop its leaves before blooming.
This flowering tree is ideal for adding a splash of color along streets or driveways in warmer climates, since it's incredibly heat- and drought-tolerant and can grow in nearly any soil.
Live in a cooler climate but still want tropical blooms? Just plant your Yellow Trumpet Tree in a large patio container, and bring it indoors when temperatures drop.

Planting & Care
Plant your Yellow 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 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 Yellow 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: 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 Yellow Trumpet Tree will naturally grow into an asymmetrical form, with two or three dominant trunks. However, you can prune to control size and shape as needed, and to remove broken branches. Container-planted Trumpet Trees can be treated as bonsai.
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.

- transshipment bit
- roots system
Tree was packaged very well
I was worried that the 5 ft tree would not survive Sacramento sweltering heat during the transshipment bit it arrived in good shape. The only complaint is there were not a lot of roots; roots system did not seem enough to support such a big tree
