Finally, I discovered the identity of this polychromatic ipê. Both parent species - Handroanthus impetiginosus and H. chrysotrichus - are native here in Sao Paulo and I have planted many of these wonderful trees. But from this hybrid I only know an individual, near my house, in Guarujá. I asked my friends and colleagues, botanists and landscapers, but no one knew how to give me the information I find now on your website. Thank you for that!
Does anyone know if it can be propagated by cutting and what type (apical, median, basal etc.)?
