The Yellow Tabebuia Tree, sometimes called Golden Trumpet Tree, is a fast grower to 30 feet. This tree is cold hardy, fine in Zone 9B, with brown bark and clusters of bright yellow-gold flowers in spring.
Tabebuia Tree Care
Add top soil (or organic peat moss) to the hole when you plant. You may also want to add in composted cow manure to enrich the soil around the tree’s roots. Trimming isn’t necessary unless you need to remove any too-low branches. A Tabebuia tree can be somewhat drought-tolerant once established, but they do best with a regular irrigation schedule allowing time between waterings for the soil to dry out a bit. Fertilize 3 times a year (in spring, summer and autumn) with a quality granular fertilizer.
Tabebuia Tree Spacing
Plant 15 feet from the house. Come in from walks and drives 8 to 10 feet (or more). If you’re planting a tabebuia tree in a row, space them at least 10 to 12 feet apart. You can grow this tree in a large container while it’s young.
