Story of this Seed:

I grew up not far from where I live now. I remember these beautiful trees planted in many of the neighbor's yards, especially along the path we took to walk to school. I always looked forward the spectacular display and even loved the "dropping of the blooms" as I thought that must be what pink snow would look like. When I had a place of my own, I made sure I planted the pink and yellow tabebuia.


Growing Tips:

Germination suggestions: Prepare well draining potting mix of your choice. Moisten and lightly firm up the potting mix. Lay seeds flat in middle of pot, or one seed per potting cell. Lightly cover with potting mix. Lightly press soil to assure that seed is making good contact top and bottom with the potting mix. Gently water. Place in warm, lighted location and do not let the pot completely dry out. My last seed germination took about seven days and some of the seedlings were emerging. Transplant into larger pot or into the ground when seedlings are several inches high or more. I found that soaking is not necessary, but it may be helpful to soak the seeds in ambient temperature water for an hour or so.

Once the tree has been moved to its home, keep well water and make sure the soil is well draining. When mature the trees are somewhat drought tolerant. I trim the bottom branches off to encourage an umbrella canopy. Easy to grow and maintain.
