FLOWERY TREES



This beautiful and extremely scented and fragrant tree, native from Brazil, is knows as Copperpod, Yellow Flame or Yellow Flamboyant, in Portuguese "Sibipiruna", scientific name: Caesalpinia peltophorides. The Yellow Flame has lovely and beautiful flowers, 1.5 inches across (4 cm), with crinkled petals, each with a brown spot. This tree can not tolerate frost and likes light shade to full sun. Fast growing to 25 to 50 feet tall (8-15 m), up to 25 feet across.



The "Sibipiruna" has a big crown, a wonderful canopy affording refreshing shade. I love to seat under this beautiful tree in my backyard to rest or to read a book.

Yellow Flame Tree, "Sibipiruna"










Below we see the marvelous Golden Trumpet Tree, in Portuguese "Ipê Amarelo", scientific name: Tabebuia chrysotricha. Tabebuia "is a neotropical genus of about 100 species of large shrubs and trees in the tribe Tecomeae of the family Bignoniaceae, original from Brazil. This beautiful tree can arrive to 25 feet of height. During the winter, the leaves of the "Ipê Amarelo" fall and the tree becomes completely naked. Many species are dry-season deciduous and flower on leafless stems at the end of the dry season, making the floral display more conspicuous. In botany, deciduous plants, principally trees and shrubs, are those that lose all of their foliage for part of the year. Species in this genus are important as ornamentals plant in parks and gardens, as well as in the lining of streets, because of their showy flowers. The bark of several species is used medicinally. The wood is used for furniture, decking and other outdoor uses".

  1. You have so many beautiful trees at your place, with the space to allow them to grow large. What a wonderful garden for the summer - beside the lake, with lots of space and shade. Do you get cooling breezes blowing off the lake? Can you tell me how big is your garden? It certainly looks like it covers a few acres.

  2. Am enjoying the delights of your garden - especially seeing the fruit trees in production. We have a young Brazilian cherry, a Jaboticaba and a Lychee in our orchard and look forward to the time when they produce an abundance of fruit like yours.
