Cherry Blossom Season

Also known by their scientific name, Tabebuia Rosea, Trumpet Trees are commonly planted in Singapore as a shade providing tree. These trees are native to tropical rainforests across South Africa as well.

The flowers of Trumpet Trees are trumpet-shaped, hence their name.

Planted along road sides and parks, these trees provides us with shade and also a spectacular show of pink blooms when their flowers fall to the ground.

The Trumpet Trees are also commonly referred to as Singapore’s version of the ‘Sakura’.
