After a discussion in the Florida gardening forum and googling, I'm confused. I've always known the plant as Tabebuia but many plants have been moved from one genus to another and I admit that it doesn't take much to confuse me anymore when it comes to plants. Green Grin! Aren't these the same plant?

Pink Trumpet Tree (Handroanthus impetiginosus):


The plant list shows Tabebuia as a synonym: http://www.theplantlist.org/tp...

Looks like TPL/Kew and Grin agree that Tabebuia impetiginosa is the synonym, as of 2008. I'll update them. Thanks.
