Flower (Photos) The Golden Trumpet Trees in Okinawa, Japan
Mrs. RyukyuMike says the trees came from Brazil. She thinks she knows everything, you know. But, she doesn't know Latin. She did come up with the word, Ipe. That's what they call these trees over here.
So, armed with the words, Ipe, Tree, Brazil, Flower and Okinawa, Japan I searched for a few hours last night.
Now, I know we have Golden Trumpet Trees. There must be a hundred different kinds of them. Some people claim they grow 120 feet tall, have no leaves, make great hardwood furniture, boardwalks and all kinds of stuff.
Who knows? These trees may have discovered America, too!
You can say anything you want on the internet. I think it's an unwritten international law.
After you look at these Golden Trumpet Tree photos, if you know your flowers and happen to know the correct scientific name for the ones in Okinawa, Japan holler back at me. OK?
