Planting & Care
As members of the trumpet creeper family Bignoniaceae, the 150 species within the tabebuia genus are most commonly known as trumpet trees. Native to South America and Mexico, these deciduous and semi-deciduous tropical trees grow in U.S. Department of Agriculture cold hardiness zones 9 through 11, with individual species varying in preference.
Tolerant of many different soil types as long as they are well drained, the trees are drought-tolerant and resistant to most pests and diseases. Colorful tabebuia trees often provide shade cover beside decks and patios or are pruned into covering canopy shapes beside streets and sidewalks.
