The White Ipe is one of the lesser known ornamental tabebuias in the usa. It is a medium-sized tree with a mature height of 30 or more feet. It is an upright tree with a somewhat irregular open crown and rough gray furrowed bark. Leaves are green, compound with 3 leaflets, up to 5 inches long, slightly hairy on both surfaces. Flowers are borne in terminal clusters of white to pale pink blooms, 2-3 inches long, which attracts hummingbirds, bees and insects as pollinators. Flowering occurs when the tree is leafless, creating a strikingly-beautiful sight. In brazil and argentina, white ipe is known as a honey tree.

Furthermore, the fruits are long narrow hard brown pods. The pods are up to 7 inches long, containing numerous winged seeds. Seeds and cuttings serve for propagation. White ipe is a timber tree in its native area, with hard dense wood used in construction. It is a good tree for reforestation being a pioneer species; it is hardy and is easy to grow on any well-drained soil and has no serious pest or disease problems. White ipe is an excellent patio plant, street tree, in parking lots islands and generally in gardens and parks.
