- It’s not the same as Pink Tabeebuia, which we have in the house. It is also different from Tabeebuia rosea which is fast-growing and much bigger.

Update: I think we “found” the tree! Lost track of it. Here it is growing nicely in 2017! not 100% sure that it’s the same one. I posted it in Co’s Digital Flora of the Philippines and am told that it’s probably Tabebuia rosea. They didn’t seem to think it was Tabebuia impetiginosa! I will wait to for the flowers!
