Tabebuia rosea

Tabebuia rosea is an evergreen tree from the plant  Family Bignoniaceae.  It is commonly known as trumpet tree.  The flowers are trumpet-shaped and purplish pink in colour.  Trees with white flowers are given the name Tabebuia roseo-alba.

For this phenomenon the plant has gained the nickname of Malaysian sakura.  The beauty of Tabebuia can be in Malaysia can be appreciated by visiting, among others, these pages:
