COLUMN: The golden flowers of the trumpet tree - yoursun.com
Trumpet trees are native to tropical America and are valued landscape ornamentals seen throughout South and Central Florida. The identity of these trees can get a bit confusing due to their common names, so let’s stick to Latin for a moment. The genus of these flowering trees has changed, so instead of the well-known Tabebuia, they are now Handroanthus.Handroanthus chrysanthus (sometimes called the golden trumpet tree) is a bit cold tender and better adapted to the warmer parts (and microclimates) of Charlotte County and southward. Handroanthus umbellatus (sometimes called the yellow trumpet tree) is better able to tolerate low winter temperatures here and further north.One last species seen in our area is silver trumpet tree. Noted for silvery foliage, contorted trunk and silvery gnarled bark, Handroanthus caraiba, is a little frost sensitive, so plant it in protected area. The huge yellow blossoms of each type are over 3-inches long and about 1-inch wide. These flowers are funnel-like in shape and are arranged in clusters for maximum showiness.Trumpet trees are deciduous to semi-deciduous trees in nature making the late winter/early spring flower show a pleasant surprise on an otherwise bare woody plant. The yellow flowers are followed by long seed pods which also have some ornamental interest. The attractive leaves on all of these trees are palmate in shape with multiple leaflets.Locate trumpet trees in a full sun to part-shade area with well-drained, but moderately moist soil. All the trumpet trees tend to develop brittle wood as they age. As such, wind damage can be an issue. Proper pruning may help train a tree to be more wind-resistant over its lifetime. Use the...

There aren’t too many plants that can match this trophy case.Known botanically as Chrysocephalum apiculatum, Flambé is from Tasmania and Australia and has the common name strawflower, though it does not resemble the large selections we call Bracteantha. It was selected as a Mississippi Medallion Award Winner while I was a Horticulture Specialist with Mississippi State University.NONSTOP BLOOMSYou might wonder what’s so special about a plant with a name that is difficult to pronounce. The answer is nonstop blooms on a plant that is drought tolerant, heat tolerant and frost tolerant to around 30 degrees.In our Mississippi State University Trials, it bloomed with its small button-like flowers of orange or yellow from May right up until hard freezes in November or December. Gardeners is zones 9 and 10 may find it returns in the spring as a perennial with explicit drainage, but the rest of us will enjoy it as an annual, and one that is of exceptional value.GREAT IN CONTAINERSThe Flambé chrysocepalum is available in orange and yellow. The Flambé Yellow has silver-gray leaves while the Flambé Orange has olive-green foliage. The plants are trailing, reaching about 8 to 15 inches tall. This trailing habit means they are wonderful in mixed containers.Combine the hot-colored yellow Flambé yellow with cool colors like Whirlwind Blue scaevola, and this years new Whirlwind St...
