Ipe blooms!

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.

kayjones,

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.

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!
