The Yellow Ipes of Curitiba

The Ipês (yellow, pink or purple) are the most common trees used in landscaping of Curitiba, whether in parks, streets or houses. The Yellow Ipês (Tabebuia), which are part of the native flora of Parana, indicates that spring is coming and the temperatures, since then, will rise. This fine specimen is planted at the backyard of the company I work for and complementing the picture, the long neck lamp passes the feeling that it is watching us.

At the end of last year, the prefecture of Curitiba has increased from 26 to 51 the number of trees in the capital immune to cuts. Among them, two more yellow ipês: the Bus/Railway station and the Manoel Ribas avenue ones. Until then, the yellow ipe of Tiradentes Square was the only one on the list.
