:: Tabebuia Impetiginosa ::

Tabebuia impetiginosa or pink lapacho is a native Bignoniaceae tree of America, distributed from northern Mexico south to northern Argentina. It is a common tree in Argentina's northeastern region, as well as in southeastern Bolivia.

No idea when and how we got this species in India. It flowers between July and December, before the new leaves appear. Lapacho flower is large, tubular shaped, its corolla is often pink or magenta, though exceptionally seen white, about 2 inches long.

We are lucky enough to capture them in action today... Hope you guys too like this.
