Story of this Seed:

My relatives had this tree in their yards when I was a child. I always loved it. It, and its cousin, the pink tabebuia, were some of the first trees I planted when I started seriously gardening. Even the seed pods are beautiful. They are a long thick, fuzzy bown.

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.

The tree is easy to maintain and care for. While young, about 5 foot tall, I started pruning the tree to encourage and umbrella canopy. But the tree can be left to grow in its natural state.
