This is at the Huntington Gardens.
I ran into this tree looking for the famous Monkey hand tree on Spring St, and out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a beautiful Pink Dogwood, so I hung a quick U-turn and wow. I went back almost 8 weeks later and it was still blooming. The owner told me they were once planted all along Pacific Ave.
Buds are silver, terminal is flat, while the laterals are very small. Stem greenish brown.
Tubular flowers are borne in clusters of 3-5 flowers, pink to purple with a yellow throat.
Bark is attractive.
Synonyms: Lots Handroanthus impetiginosus, Tabebuia avellanedae.
Compared to the yellow trumpet tree when not blooming, look at the foliage, stems and fruit, one is covered with copper hairs, this one is not.
