Ipê-amarelo (Yellow-ipe)

Tabebuia longiflora

Description:

Muitas ruas de nossas cidades apresentam indivíduos dessa espécie que, na época da floração, formam intensos corredores e tapetes amarelos. Uma característica muito peculiar do ipê-amarelo - aliás, de todos os ipês - é a ausência de folhas durante a época reprodutiva. O ipê perde todas as suas folhas durante a permanência das flores na árvore, formando grandes copas coloridas. (ENGLISH: Many streets of our cities have individuals of this species, during flowering, form intense yellow rugs and runners. A peculiar characteristic of the yellow-ipe - indeed, of all ipe - is the absence of leaves during the reproductive season. The ipe loses all its leaves during the permanence of the flowers on the tree, forming large colorful tops.)

Habitat:
