Pink Trumpet Tree

Handroanthus impetiginosus


A South American species, this is a deciduous (or sometimes semi-deciduous) tree. Spectacular in spring when the tree is leafless and covered in large clusters of pink frilly flowers, and there is a carpet of pink on the ground. Same family as the Jacaranda - Bignoniaceae. Harvested for its timber, and also has medicinal uses. It is the national tree of Paraguay, but also grows very well in Australia's subtropical climate.


These trees were spotted in a local park in suburban Brisbane. They are very popular as park and street tree plantings, as are the Jacaranda's.

Thanks, Lauren. I didn't know what they were until I started taking photos. They are beautiful, and look so stunning when they're all flowering en masse.
