A Mass of Purple Flowers Announce the Coming of Spring
Hard to spell but easy to love, the highly ornamental Tabebuia Impetiginosa or Purple Trumpet Tree dazzles with pink/purple blossoms that herald Spring’s arrival. The Purple Trumpet is smaller than other Tabebuias, reaching about 18 ft. tall and 15 ft wide, so it’s a beautiful choice for smaller yards. It offers great summertime shade – you may want to put a garden bench underneath.
The Purple Trumpet prefers full sun to partial shade, and will thrive with regular watering. As it matures, you’ll be treated to even more flower clusters.
