Tabebuia Aurea is also known as Caribbean Trumpet and it is a medium-sized thorny tree with distinctly orange, corky bark and an irregular crown. The tree is a captivating sight when in bloom, with clusters of bright, orange-scarlet up-facing flower clusters sitting at the end of branchlets like exotic waterlilies. Leaves are compound with three broad leaflets, the middle one the largest. Flowers have 5 petals of unequal length and 10 stamens.
Tabebuia Aurea does not tolerate medium to heavy shade. This species grows well in a wide variety of soils and requires little maintenance.
It is used as a drink, medicine and source of materials. It is sometimes grown as a hedge and is often grown as an ornamental and a street tree.
Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.
Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
