Tabebuia rosea. Pink trumpet tree, roble sabana, pink trumpet.

This is a neotropical tree that can grow up to 30 meters high. Its name Roble de Sabana , which means “savanna oak”, is widely used in Costa Rica , probably because it often remains in heavily deforested areas and because of its similarity of wood to that of oaks.

Preparations from the bark of the tree are consumed to eliminate intestinal parasites, malaria and uterine cancer. A decoction of the bark is recommended for anemia and constipation. A decoction of the flowers, leaves and roots has been used to reduce fever and pain, cause sweating, treat tonsillitis and various other diseases.
