Tabebuia caraiba, Tabebuia argentea, Silver Trumpet Tree

Tabebuia caraiba, Tabebuia argentea

Silver Trumpet Tree
Family: Bignoniaceae
Origin: Brazil
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersDeciduousSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This Tabebuia is one over 100 species with blooms starting near the first day of spring in South Florida. Its masses of yellow trumpet flowers catch everyones eye in season. The foliage is mostly deciduous. Some trees lose leaves prior to blooming while others can hold some of their old leaves while in flower. One good trick is to cut off all added water 6-8 weeks before spring. This will encourage leaf drop and produce a much heavier show of flowers. All Tabebuias in irrigated landscapes are poorer bloomers due to this excess water. The trunk and wood of this Tabebuia is also very interesting. This variety has brittle wood that breaks in strong winds, but the tree always comes back. Newly planted large field grown trees take several years to stabilize root strength, so strong storms can easily topple large, newly planted trees. Stand them up immediately. Use this tree for small spaces, in full sun, on well drained soil. The tree has no pests.

Tagetes lemmonii, Tagetes, Lemon Marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy

Tagetes lemmonii

Tagetes, Lemon Marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy
Family: Asteraceae
Origin: Mexico
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Lemon marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy - usually a small shrub that can be trimmed to a groundcover level, this plant can reach up a few feet if you let it go. It has very aromatic, airy foliage and vibrant yellow daisy-like blooms.

A strong fragrance from the finely divided foliage is released when rubbed or brushed against. Orange-yellow flowers in fall-winter with off bloom in other seasons - flowering is triggered by short day length so overcast weather can extend flowering in spring. Plant in sun or part shade in well-drained soil. Drought tolerant in coastal gardens but looks best with a little irrigation - too much water or too little light produces leggy plants that don't bloom well. One of the best butterfly attractors!
