Tabebuia is a genus containing around 100 species, many widely used in hot-weather gardens everywhere. T. impetiginosa is a small tree which may be leafless when in flower. The bright rose-pink to light purple flowers may totally cover the tree in spring. A good choice for small yards or potting culture.

Tabebuia is a native Brazilian word meaning "ant wood", as ants live in the hollow dead twigs.
