Common name: Surinam greenheart, pau d'arco, taheebo, ipe roxo, yellow poui, amapa, tahuari.
A native to rainforests throughout Central- and South America.
The bark of Surinam greenheart contains more than 20 active compounds including lapachol, quercetin and other flavonoids. It is one of the largest and strongest of tropical forest trees, growing up to 150 feet tall while the base can be 4 to 7 feet in diameter.
One cubic foot may weight from 70 to 85 lbs. It is resistant to insects and decay so it is difficult to surpass it for durability.
There are several species of the Tabebuia and all have beautiful flowers; purple, yellow and pink.
The compounded leaves of Surinam greenheart or pau d'arco, consist of 1 pair identical, small leaves, followed by 1 pair of larger ones and at the end there is one leaf, the largest, with a noticeble point. During the dry season all the leaves are shedded and the bare branches are covered with fragrant bright-yellow flowers; that make the tree very ornamental for use in gardens and cities.
