Since I do not know its name, I did a Google search and found out its Tabebuia or roble. Some people refer to this particular tree as a “trumpet tree,” but Wikipedia disagrees.
Tabebuia is native to the American tropics and subtropics from Mexico and the Caribbean to Argentina and is commonly grown as a flowering tree for gardens and roadsides.
A trivia: The nectar of Tabebuia flowers is an important food source for several species of bees and hummingbird.
Here’s a close-up of a Pink Tabebuia flower.
While daintily pretty, the flowers don’t last long. I notice that some trees with a beautiful crop of flowers lose them in 4-7 days. I took these photos late last week and this morning, the same tree that’s pictured above doesn’t look as pretty as pictured because 3/4 of the flowers was already gone.
That is why as soon as I saw the flowers in full-bloom last week, I made sure to take some photos.
