Purple Tabebuia Tree

A gorgeous tree for tropical regions, purple tabebuia blooms in winter or early spring. Its showy, trumpet-shape blooms unfurl in dense, rose-pink to purple clusters. This tree tends to have a shrubby habit when it is young. Train it to a single trunk by removing suckers and staking it while it is young. When it reaches 6-8 feet tall, it can be allowed to grow naturally.



Purple tabebuia is a slow-growing tree with a rounded form. It tolerates a variety of soils and is drought-tolerant. Because its canopy is thin, it is best-suited for a mixed border or background planting.
