TREES IN MY YARD


Golden Trumpet Tree, "Ipê Amarelo" in Portuguese. The scientific name is 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.


That tree is native from Brazil, named Canafístula or Chuva-de-Ouro ( "Rain of Gold"). The Cassia ferruginea, from the family Leguminosae-Caesalpinoideae, bears the most flagrant flowers, which are arranged in hanging racemes. The flowers appear in October, November and December.




Flamboyant Tree, Royal Poinciana (family Fabaceae), is a tropical or subtropical flowering plant native of Madagascar and is consistently voted among the top 5 most beautiful flowering trees in the world. Royal Poinciana deserves its support. It may be the most colorful flowering tree in the world as well. Other common names for Royal Poinciana include Flamboyant Tree, Flame Tree, Mohur Tree and Red Flame.




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.






These two trees above are known as Barbatimão (Stryphnodendron adstringens), Family Leguminosae-Mimosoideae. This luxuriant tree in my yard is native to Brazil's cerrado vegetation.The Brazilian cerrado (savanna) bioma covers 2 million km² representing 23% of the area of the country (the same size as Western Europe).











We planted cypress all around our yard. Thuja occidentalis, a species of thuja, is an evergreen coniferous tree in the cypress family Cupressaceae, native to the northeastern U.S. and southeastern Canada, from central Saskatchewan east to New Brunswick, and south to eastern Tennessee in the Appalachian Mountains. This palm tree is a native plant in our region.

  1. Thank you for posting such a wonderful blog. I stumbled across it by browsing through misc blog. Yours is one of the best that I've come across. I love all of the pictures and descriptions. I've always been fasinated with South America, but I've never been there. I live in northern Mid Michigan (in the middle of the mitten). It's much colder up here. It's raining today and they are talking snow showers this weekend. YUCK! Some day I hope to visit your beautiful country. We own a couple of vacation rentals up here in Michigan. Maybe there is something down there that we could exchange to rent some day. Thanks again for posting this great blog!

  5. The Royal Poinciana will always have a special place in my heart as it was one of the first trees I saw upon driving from an airport in Central America.

  10. What beautiful trees I have never seen in my life ! and you are so lucky having flowers during Oct-Dec period. Here all is naked and no flowers at all. That's why I hate winter. Your pictures are really very nice.
    The interesting part of reading Blogs is, that you will learn so many things which are not existing in books or TV or when they exist then it's not personal it's technical.
