Tipu (Tipuana tipu)
The Tipu tree is becoming more and more popular every year - for good reason. Prized for it's almost ridiculous growth rate, homeowners and commercial landscapers are finding the Tipu tree quite useful in many landscape designs. In the late Spring, the Tipu puts on a unique show of golden blooms over the entire tree. At this bloom time, as with most flowering trees, demand doubles or triples at our nurseries with many customers seeking Tipu trees.
For the amount of shade they provide, combined with little water use, Tipu trees are always a sure bet when seeking a shade tree for your landscape.
