9 Trumpet Tree

Trumpet Tree (Tabebuia rosea)
Family: Bignoniaceae


Tabebuia Rosea

The Trumpet Tree grows up to 18-25m tall, and has a large, broadly conical and shady crown. The tree’s name comes from its large trumpet-shaped flowers, which range in colour from pink to white.

The fruits are elongated pods, which split open to released winged seeds. This tree is known for its impressive flowering display, where the entire tree is spectacularly covered in blossoms. This takes place in April and August, usually after a dry spell.

When their flowers fall, they retain their colour for a couple of days, forming a beautiful carpet of flowers around the tree.
