Q. Yellow Tabebuia Tree

Is it possible to over water a young Tabebuia tree, and if so, how can you tell if it is over watered? My blooms were bright yellow and beautiful, and then all of a sudden they became dark and not so pretty. I was told to water it every day for the first six months, but it also rains a lot in between. It was planted in December.

It needs a lot of water when in active growth, but not as much in dormancy. In fact, they flower better if they are left a little dry when they are in their dormant season.

Q. Tabebuia tree

My neighbor has had her tabubia tree for four years and it has never bloomed. What could the reason be? It looks like a healthy tree.

These trees need to mature and normally start blooming around age 7 to 10 years of age.

My research shows that your tree may just not be mature enough to flower.
They are slow growing.
Review the article below to refresh yourself on the care requirements and give your tree another season or two.

Q. yellow tabebuia

I’ve had my yellow tabebuia in the ground for about 12 years, and aside from
a few sickly yellow blossoms each season, nothing. The tree has never bloomed
beyond that. The tree itself is about 15′ tall with dense, green foliage and
otherwise appears to be healthy. Any advice. Ron, Miami, FL

I would suggest a soil test, this is the best way to determine if nutrients are needed and if you should amend the soil.

Q. Tabebuia tree

Hurricane Irma snapped our 9′ high tabebuia tree in half. We’ve cut it down to a stump. Any chance it will re-grow, or should we just dig out the stump?

It would be best to let the tree stay for a few more weeks to see if it will recover. it is very possible it will give new growth. If after several weeks nothing happens, then it would be advised to remove the stump.

Q. Tababula tree

We just planted a 35-gallon tababula tree in zone 9b, bought from a local nursery and planted professionally, about one month ago. We have been watering daily slowly for about one hour each morning. After a recent heavy frost, the leaves turned brown. Will the tree survive and what should we expect.

It is likely that it will survive. It will just take a little while to recover. They are hardy in your area, but you may want to cover them with burlap, canvas, or some other material on the colder nights where heavy frost is expected.

Either way will be just fine. If you do not like them being there, then you can take them off. Otherwise, you can just leave them until they fall off. This article will advise you on their care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tabebuia-trumpet-tree/tabebuia-tree-care.htm
