SILVER TRUMPET TREE Selling a plant around 1 metre in a grow bag
Tabebuia aurea [Argentea] is a species of Tabebuia native to South America in Suriname, Brazil, eastern Bolivia, Peru, Paraguay, and northern Argentina.

The common English name Caribbean trumpet tree is misleading, as it is not native to the Caribbean.

It is also known as the silver trumpet tree, and tree of gold
It is a small dry season-deciduous tree growing to 8 m tall. The leaves are palmately compound, with five or seven leaflets, each leaflet 6–18 cm long, green with silvery scales both above and below.

The flowers are bright yellow, up to 6.5 cm diameter, produced several together in a loose panicle. The fruit is a slender 10 cm long capsule.


Cultivation

It is a popular ornamental tree in subtropical and tropical regions, grown for its spectacular flower display on leafless shoots at the end of the dry season.

This species presence in riparian areas of the Caatinga of northeastern Brazil is a crucial resource for Spix’s macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii), which is extinct in the wild with fewer than 100 birds remaining in captivity.

Any future reintroduction would have to provide sufficient T. aurea for nesting and other purposes – while the tree is not considered threatened on a global scale, locally it has declined due to unsustainable use for timber and some other factors.

Shipping is extra so please ask for price before paying, Henry HERE
