IPÊ-ROSA... PINK TABEBUIA...

Today's Photo Friday challenge is "Common" . As June and July are the months of the magnificent pink tubular flowers of the Tabebuia pentaphylla, I post some photos of this beautiful tree. The first seven photos were taken in my garden by myself.





In Brazil this tree is known as “Ipê-Rosa” and in English known as Pink tabebuia, Pink tecoma, Pink trumpet, Pink poui and Rosy trumpet-tree.

We can see Tabebuia flowers profusely in winter and they can be seen in several places surrounds my neighborhood and also in quite a few places in the country.



"The Tabebuia pentaphylla rosea is native to continental America and common from wet lowlands to dry uplands, from southern Mexico to Venezuela and coastal Ecuador. The species can be found in essentially pure stands, as isolated trees, or in a mixed forest. Tabebuia rosea is a tall, fast-growing tree reaching 25 to30 m high. The crown is wide, stratified, and irregular, with a few thick, horizontal branches; the bole is straight, sometimes channeled at base. Leaves are dropped March through June. Tabebuia rosea is found in deep and superficial soils, but grows better in well-drained soils with a light texture. Tabebuia rosea was previously identified as Tabebuia pentaphylla in several Central American countries.”











This large, erect and semi-deciduous tree with delicate trumpet-shaped flowers that appear in clusters in pastel shades of pink, make a wonderful spectacle. The tree draws attention because of its profuse flowering and the falling blooms make a dense carpet below.

  4. One man's meat...I always find it interesting that what is exotic and new to my eyes might very well be something quite common to someone else!

  10. Lovely Sonia!! I love the one with the bird too!

    (You asked in my blog who Cucoo was. That is the purple headed thing Sandy is holding. She just named it that. It might be a pencil with that thing on top of it, but I'm not sure. She photos it a lot and just has fun with it, like it's a real thing.)

  14. Hi Sonia,
    What a wonderful blog. I love it! I can't wait to read your archives. The photos in this post are great but I was very fascinated by the previous post about your family. I'd love to read your grandfather's books. Also, your relatives are uncommonly attractive. I hope there's a photo of you lurking somewhere in the archives.
    Thanks for you kind comments at my site. I really appreciated your visit.
    BTW, If you haven't visited Claude at Blogging in Paris (the link is in my comment section) I think you'd very much enjoy her blog.

  18. The blooms themselves seem very similar to our azaleas here in the States but the tree is so much grander! I love the pink against the blue, blue sky.

  19. Sonia, these photos are amazing! Love the last one, too with the building in the background -- so much interest captured there!

  22. When I looked at the first photo I thought the flowers were very like tall bearded irises, my favorite flower. That would be something to have a tree with iris-like flowers. Thank you for the beautiful photos, Sonia!
