Check out these five species of flowering trees that are in full bloom now.

The Trumpet Tree (Tabebuia rosea)

What: The hallmark of this tall tree – it can grow to up to 25m tall – is its broad, conical and shady crown. It has trumpet-shaped flowers, which give the tree its name. The blossoms range in colour from pink to white. The fruits are elongated pods which, when split open, release winged seeds.

The tree can be found in places such as Robertson Quay and North Buona Vista Road.
