The trumpet-shaped, yellow blossoms of the deciduous Caribbean trumpet tree (Tabebuia aurea) appear briefly in a spectacular display of color. In addition to its silvery foliage, the Caribbean trumpet tree has attractive silvery, corky bark. It grows from 30 to 40 feet tall and often leans. Its branches and trunk are typically contorted with two or three major trunks or branches dominating an asymmetrical crown.

While tolerant of a variety of soils, Tabebuia growing conditions must include a warm location with no freezing possibility. The plants have a high drought tolerance but do prefer fertile soil with good drainage. If your garden has clay, loam, sand or any soil pH, these will still fulfill appropriate Tabebuia growing conditions. Tabebuia is adaptable to full to partial sun locations and some will even tolerate a light freeze and come back in the milder zones. Pruning the dead wood and brittle old stems is an essential part of Tabebuia tree care. Tabebuia trees are attractive and adjust to many growing conditions. Adding this tree to your landscape is worth the effort it will take to find the plant. The rewards are numerous and the care is minimal.
