Pink Trumpet Tree
There’s no question as to how this tree got its name- its flowers look strikingly like tiny pink trumpets. But, the Trumpet Tree genus can be otherwise referred to as Tabebuia, Ipê, or Lapacho. The Tabebuia/Trumpet Tree/Ipê/Lapacho has over 100 species. With such an impressive springtime bloom and with a native range stretching from Mexico to Argentina, it’s no wonder that cousins of the Pink Trumpet are the national trees of both El Salvador and Venezuela.
