Beautiful blooming trees, the Tabebuias are small, 15 to 25-foot tall, evergreen trees with silvery foliage and deeply furrowed, silvery bark on picturesque, contorted branches and trunk.
The crown is usually asymmetrical with two or three major trunks or branches dominating the crown.
The leaves are narrow and elongated, an identifying feature of the tree. Sporadically throughout the year, they put on a brilliant display composed of a multitude of two to three-inch-long, golden yellow, trumpet-shaped blooms borne in terminal flower clusters.
The leaves often drop just before the flowers appear. Even without the flowers this Tabebuia is a magnificent tree with its crooked trunk, corky bark, and silvery leaves.
