PINK TRUMPET (TABEBUIA PENTAPHYLLA) - IPÊ-ROSA




This gorgeous tree beside my house is the "Ipê Rosa" (Tabebuia pentaphylla), 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. Leaves are dropped March through June. The tree draws attention because of its profuse flowering and the falling blooms make a dense carpet below. Tabebuia consists of about 20 species and occurs in practically every Latin American country. June and July are the months of the magnificent pink tubular flowers. (See another species of Tabebuia)





O Ipê rosa (Tabebuia pentaphylla) é o primeiro dos Ipês a florir no ano, inicia a floração em Junho, mas ainda pode ser encontrado com flores até Setembro. Esta espécie se confunde bastante com outras espécies, como a Tabebuia impetiginosa e a Tabebuia heptaphylla. (Veja outras espécies de Tabebuia)




Ipê rosa full of green leaves


The leaves begin to fall...


Flora and the tapestry of fallen leaves




The tree is blooming abundantly!



The flowers begin to fallen...



Those flowers attract many bees (this huge bee is known as "mamangaba"), wasps, birds, hummingbirds and butterflies.

  1. Wow!! I just opened your blog and got all this pink in my eyes, in your new banner!

    This tree is just incredible, manficient! ... and you have it in your garden! I know hardly anything about trees and flowers (like to see and admire them of course), however I have a feeling that you may see some of these also elsewhere, but of this size...!!

  2. Sônia,
    oba! primeirão a comentar. Então pode ser tudo em língua pátria, né?
    Olha, ficamos eu e a Aninha encantados com as fotos.
    O Ipê Rosa é a árvore preferida da Aninha. Gostamos também do Amarelo, aqui na serra do mar é mais abundante. Mas o Ipê Rosa ou Roxo como alguns falam é de longe o mais belo.
    EW as flores caídas pelo chão, juntamente com as folhas secas formando um tapete são um espetáculo à parte.
    Gostas tanto de plantas e flores que até a cachorra recebeu o nome de Flora. Boa escolha.
    Parabéns, tuas fotos são lindas.
    As das lixias alí em baixo chegam a dar água na boca.
    Bom final de seman,
    Um beijo.

    ps: durante a semana te dou um alô e vc me dá um help com o bloglines, tá?
    (olha aí, sem querer duas palavras in english!)

  14. I've always loved jacaranda trees and was convinced that they were the most beautiful trees, second to none. Well, now that I've seen your Ipê Rosa, I've fallen in love with it. Jacaranda and Ipê Rosa are my favorite trees. :)
