Orchid Trees
Q.

Just wondering if Hong Kong Orchid trees drop their leaves more than once a year.

It seems I'm picking up leaves a lot during the year, but I've never paid attention to the time of year I'm doing it. It's nearing the end of losing its leaves now (June), and I'm looking forward to another year of healthy green leaves and blossoms in the near future.

They don't usually drop their leaves more than once per year unless conditions are dry. This will cause leaf drop to preserve moisture within the tree. It will usually recover from this.
