GOLDEN TRUMPET TREE... IPÊ AMARELO...

These sets of photos of Tabebuia chrysotricha, known as Ipê-Amarelo (Yellow Ipê), where taken by me near my house. Tabebuia is a genus of about 100 species of large shrubs and trees in the tribe Tecomeae of the family Bignoniaceae. The species range from northern Mexico and the Antilles south to northern Argentina and also Brazil.






Many species are dry-season deciduous and flower on leafless stems at the end of the dry season, making the floral display more conspicuous. The bark of several species is used medicinally. The wood is used for furniture, decking, and other outdoor uses. (Deciduous means temporary or tending to fall off).

a blaze of golden color ... they are so like our forsythia ... though our shrubs are much smaller. Brazil is beautiful!

Sonia,
I love the golden color of these trees. I agree they look like forsythia but yours are much larger!
((hugs))

I saw trees similar to this in Hollister, CA. The yellow is so intense! Thank you for sharing.

Golden Trumpet. Perfect name is it not? Yellow against blue = one of my favourite colour combinations.
Thankyou S.

What a BEAUTIFUL Tree, Sonia...I'd love to see the blossoms up close, just cause I'm a nut that way! (lol) They grow High and Low, too! At least it looks that way in that last picture....or is it the angle of where you were standing?
Just Beautiful!

Oi, Sonia!
Cheguei ao seu blog pelo Google (estava procurando um texto sobre "pitangas" em inglês para as pessoas que não lêem português).
Gostei muito do "Leaves of grass", você mora em um lugar lindo! Irei colocar seu blog no meu link de blogs permanente no Kafka na praia. Também gosto de fotografar árvores, paisagens e plantas, tenho fotos de ipês em um outro blog, o "Nos quatro cantos do mundo".
Beijos!

Deana said...

Hope you and yours are doing great!

Well I'll hardly be original saying this but wow what lovely bright trees!

Sonia Novaes said...

Esses ipês amarelos, são símbolos da nossa flora brasileira...
Quando faço minhas viagens à Minas, vou apreciando a paisagem desse nosso imenso Brasil...o colorido é inexplicável, cd época do ano há uma coloração diferente, mas a época dos ipês, não tem nada que se compare a beleza dessa nossa terra tão querida...
Sonia, obrigada por adicionar o meu blog à seus links.
Quero colocar tb o seu e de outros amigos, no meu link, mas estou aguardando a vinda do meu filho, aqui em casa...pois ainda nãos sei fazer isso...he!he!...mas chego lá...
Beijos no coração...
Sonia Novaes
