Tabebuia Impetiginosa (recently reclassed as Handroanthus impetiginosus), or Ipes as they are commonly called are small growing semi tropical deciduous blooming trees, and among the most beautiful and popular flowering trees suited for the semi tropical and tropical landscape. Other common names are Purple Trumpet Tree, Purple Lapacho, Pau D Arco, and Tecoma. This species is native to South America.
These trees put on a show for about 21 days in the early spring that is simply unmatched. It will shed the leaves when nights dip into the low 40s and then typically in mid February to early March it bursts forth in a glorious display of profuse and densely packed pastel lavender tinted pink trumpets with canary yellow and ruby red striped throats. The flowers cover the entire branch canopy of the tree for a long bloom period that is typically lasts 21 days.
The flowers are followed by long glossy seed pods that sometimes continue to hang well into the next season. New leaves appear quickly after the flowers have shed and by early summer the canopy will be fully flushed and able to provide good shade.
Tabebuia Impetiginosa matures rapidly, growing at a rate of 2-4 feet per year until reaching about 20 feet tall, thereafter growth slows considerably, making this cultivar well suited for small lots and other urban uses.
