Pink Trumpet Tree
is one of the most spectacular blooming trees in the world. The tree will
loose its leaves during the winter and right after will burst with flowers
(mature trees). The care is easy. A little dryer during the winter and a little
moist during the rest of the year.
Start to fertilize after the new leaves emerge. Don't fertlize during the
winter. They don't need much trimming, but the best time to do it is right
after the flowers finish if necessary.
