Tabebuia impetiginosa - Purple Trumpet Tree

Tabebuia impetiginosa is an excellent choice for inland valley locations. The pink-purple blossoms are produced extravagantly in the latter part of Winter and Early Spring. Later in the season Tabebuia impetiginosa is a fine small shade tree eventually reaching 25 feet. The Purple Trumpet Tree is a good street tree and can tolerate being planted in a lawn. It may take several years for Tabebuia impetiginosa to start blooming, I have seen some very reluctant trees in coastal communities. Tabebuia impetiginosa is hardy into the high teens.
