Golden Trumpet Tree
Trumpet Tree is one of the most beautiful trees in flower in the world! Its bright blooms fill the sky in spring with vivid yellow color for several weeks. All foliage drops from the tree just before it flowers. This is normal and is not a cause for concern. Plants flowers and grow best in full sun. Branches often form included bark in the crotches. This can cause the branch to split from the trunk as it grows older. This tree has survived without cold damage many winters (1990-2003) in hardiness zone 8B and may grow farther north in protected locations. Golden Trumpet Tree can be grown best in full sun on any reasonably fertile soil with moderate moisture.
