Just spent a while trying to find my original post but came up empty.
Wanted to thank the Florida Garden Bud who suggested I use acid fert on my 10+ year old Ipe that had NEVER bloomed.
Veronica, it's lovely - I'd love to have a start! Email me through 'my page' and tell me what you'd like in trade. Thanks!
Do you see it growing in your area? I do not know how far north it will grow. It may set seed pods this year though it took so long to bloom you might be better off with one from a nursery.
Here is a link that might be useful: Tabeuia impetiginosa
Veronica, I have not seen this tree in my area. My research reveals that it's only hardy to zone 9. I DO have a greenhouse, but it's not big enough to house what will become a 20' tree!
