Who says you have to book a flight to Japan to witness the cherry blossom season?

It’s that time of year when Singapore’s version of “Sakura Season” as Trumpet Tree flowers deck our pavements and road dividers turning our island into a sea of pink.

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’.
