Now don't be fooled ... even though it's known as a dwarf it can grow to 25 feet with a rather large canopy. It's a beautiful tree in many ways. First, there's the light grey bark and smooth dark green leaves.
Then there are the 2-3 inch long lavender-pink flowers with yellow centres which appear in clusters in mid-Winter.
The photo below shows my very tall Tabebuia impetiginosa just coming into bloom now ... with the contrasting Bauhinia ... another fabulous winter bloomer ... showing off it's stunning white flowers on almost completely leafless branches. I love this sight as I drive into the property at this time of year.
