Tipu Tree | Drought Tolerant Trees

The Tipu Tree (Tipuana tipu) is prized for it’s almost ridiculous growth rate, home owners and commercial landscapers are finding the Tipu tree quite useful in many landscape designs.  In the late Spring, the Tipu puts on a very unique show of golden blooms over the entire tree.  For the amount of shade they provide, combined with moderate water use, Tipus are always a sure bet when seeking large, wide shade.
