BLUE SKY AND YELLOW TREE

Welcome to Sky Watch Friday


Tabebuia chrysotricha (Golden Trumpet Tree)





These sets of photos of Tabebuia chrysotricha, known as Ipê-amarelo (yellow ipê), where taken by husband and myself in my garden just this week. 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).

  1. Golly. That is an amazing tree. The color is so vivid it looks almost fake. The Golden Trumpet Tree is really golden. I don't know a single thing about the tree so my question may sound like I dumber than a door nail but is the yellow a blossom or is that somehow the leaves?

    The sky is nice too and is a perfect foil for the texture of the trees.

  26. Outra maravilha de Deus, D+.
    Tenho um ipê branco no meu jardim que após 12 anos, floriu pela primeira vez, apesar de sua altura de mais de 5 metros emitiu pouco mais de 1 dúzia de flores. Outras dúzia virão.

  38. A very beautiful tree in full bloom. The yellow sets off so well against the blue of the sky.
    This could at a distance have been a photo in our park as our Acacias are also in bloom and are so like your tree in shape and colour.

    Tao impressionante quanto à beleza destas flores e da árvore, é a popularidade deste blog, ou seja, a sua. A árvore parece ser remanescente e não plantada apos a construção da casa, é isto mesmo?
