Pink Trumpet Bush, scientifically known as Tabebuia heterophylla, is a highly ornamental tree native to the Caribbean, South and Central America. It is celebrated for its stunning display of pink, trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom profusely in late winter to early spring, often before the leaves fully emerge, creating a spectacular floral display. The tree is deciduous or semi-evergreen, depending on the climate where it is grown, losing its leaves for a short period in cooler climates.

Growing to about 15 to 25 feet in height with a spread of 10 to 15 feet, the Pink Trumpet Bush forms a rounded canopy with a moderately dense growth habit. Its leaves are compound, glossy, and dark green, providing a lush backdrop for the pink blossoms that attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Adapted to full sun, the Pink Trumpet Bush thrives in well-draining soil and is moderately drought-tolerant once established. It prefers a warm climate and is suitable for growing in USDA zones 9b through 11. The tree is relatively low-maintenance, requiring minimal care once it is well-established in the landscape.

In landscaping, the Pink Trumpet Bush is often used as a specimen tree due to its striking floral display and attractive form. It is suitable for small gardens, park settings, and as a street tree in suitable climates. The tree's moderate size and beautiful flowers make it an excellent choice for adding color and visual interest to the landscape.

Overall, the Pink Trumpet Bush is a valuable and attractive addition to warm-climate gardens, offering a spectacular bloom display, wildlife attraction, and a manageable size for a variety of landscape settings. Its ease of care and stunning appearance make it a favored choice among gardeners looking to create impactful and vibrant garden spaces.
