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.
Tabebuia bahamensis grows as a large shrub, 5-10 feet tall and can grow as small tree of 10-20 feet tall under favorable conditions. It produces exquisitely beautiful Pink and White, off-White flowers and this makes it perfect for ornamental planting. This plant can tolerate moderate water and is salt-tolerant too so it could be grown near the seaside. In terms of cold-hardiness, it can survive toughest of cold as it is mature enough to tolerate temperatures as low as low 30s F for a short time.
For growing Tabebuia bahamensis in pot in cold regions, it is very important to keep the plant well protected from extreme cold temperatures. Best way to ensure that is by bringing the pot inside the house for the winter or if it cannot be done then keeping it in more protected areas outdoors like garage or porch is recommended. Also, the pot should be insulated and well protected by covering the soil with mulch, burlap panels and other suitable materials. Furthermore, if the soil gets really dry, consider using overhead irrigation system to provide moisture. Lastly, make sure to fertilize your plants in spring and summer with slow-release fertilizer to encourage blooming and promote healthy foliage growth.
All in all, Tabebuia bahamensis is a stunning plant native to the Bahamas and Cuba, as it magnificently displays silky soft, light pink to white blooms on its branches. Highly tolerant of different types of soil, and low maintenance, it is ideal for ornamental use in the landscape or for container gardening in regions with cold temperatures.
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 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.
