A sparse crowned small to medium tree with large heads of golden yellow flowers which may open over a period of a few weeks. This tabebuia is a good choice for a small garden or potting culture.
This tabebuia found in woodlands and along streams in Jamaica and is very rare in cultivation. It has has very pretty, rosy white blooms coming in clusters. The tree can grow up to 40 feet high, tolerates some drought and poor soils.
Growing almost everywhere on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, this is a hard tree to miss, especially when it is in flower. Tabebuia bahamensis is similar in its appearance to its close kin T. heterophylla. However, T. bahamensis distinguishes itself from T. heterophylla with smaller leaves, and with leaflets that are slenderer, and green above and strongly whitish below. It is a slim and trim tree, with a small trunk, and delicate upright branches, and thus a striking contrast to its larger, more robust relative. T. bahamensis will do quite well on well-drained, alkaline, or acidic soils. It is briefly deciduous in the spring just before peak flowering. It begins flowering as it releafs. If water-stressed, the leafless period is more pronounced. A spotty flowerer, it may bloom intermittently during the year. T. bahamensis seeds germinate about three weeks after sowing. Its early growth is fast in moist well drained soils, roughly 70 inches in two years. A young tree begins flowering about two to three years after germination, but it will be a couple more years before it truly becomes a 'flowering' tree. It would make an ideal tree for patios. Briefly Deciduous just before flowering. Drought Tolerance: High. Nutritional requirements: Low. Potential Pests: Thrips. Typical Dimensions: 12'x8'.
This Tabebuia is one over 100 species with blooms starting near the first day of spring in South Florida. Its masses of yellow trumpet flowers catch everyones eye in season. The foliage is mostly deciduous. Some trees lose leaves prior to blooming while others can hold some of their old leaves while in flower. One good trick is to cut off all added water 6-8 weeks before spring. This will encourage leaf drop and produce a much heavier show of flowers. All Tabebuias in irrigated landscapes are poorer bloomers due to this excess water. The trunk and wood of this Tabebuia is also very interesting. This variety has brittle wood that breaks in strong winds, but the tree always comes back. Newly planted large field grown trees take several years to stabilize root strength, so strong storms can easily topple large, newly planted trees. Stand them up immediately. Use this tree for small spaces, in full sun, on well drained soil. The tree has no pests.
Rare species of Tabebuia from Caribbean. Small tree with pretty mauve flowers covering the tree. There are leaves along with flowers, unlike the other kinds of Tabebuia that loose all the leaves and left with just flowers. This one will bloom on and off all year.
Tabebuia 'Carib Queen' is Tabebuia heterophylla subsp. Pallida X Tabebuia haemantha.
Tabebuia is a genus containing around 100 species, many widely used in hot-weather gardens everywhere. In regions with a sharp division between wet and dry seasons the Pink Trumpet Tree annually sheds its foliage and the leafless branches are covered with clusters of pale to deep pink flowers.
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.
Small partly deciduous tree with glossy, opposite, palmately compound leaves. The tubular pinkish flowers having yellow centers are mixed with the leaves (as opposed to Tabebuia impetiginosa, where pinkish-purplish flowers cover the leafless tree in the spring).
Tabebuia 'Carib Queen' sometimes called T. pallida, is actually Tabebuia heterophylla subsp. pallida X Tabebuia haemantha.
This species of tabebuia has snow white flowers and is very rare.
