Hong Kong Orchid Trees are typically evergreen but they do lose their oldest leaves at this time of year. If it has green as well as yellow leaves, it's probably normal. If all the leaves are yellowing it could indicate a root stress from over or underwatering or it could indicate a need for nitrogen fertilizer. Use a 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer to help it green up. Good luck with your tree!
