Tabebuia rosea is a neotropical tree that grows up to 30 m (1,181 in) and can reach a diameter at breast height of up to 100 cm (3 ft). The name Roble de Sabana, meaning "savannah oak", is widely used in Costa Rica in Spanish, probably because it often remains in heavily deforested areas, where people appreciate its intense flowering periods and because of the resemblance of its wood to that of oak trees.
