Tabebuia cassinoides (Lam.) DC. blooming

December 13, 2009

Tabebuia cassinoides (Lam.) DC. is in full bloom. Its open flowers (at anthesis) are hard to catch. They open early in the morning and are gone by noon. It took me some time to see them at anthesis, as well as to identify the species. Tabebuia cassinoides (Lam.) DC. is one of the few local Bignoniaceae with simple leaves. Quite frequent in the area and known locally as ‘taipoca branca’.
