Kentucky Color: Wow! Yellow Tab tree in Naples, FL
By Billy Joe Fudge, Vice-President, Homeplace on Green River
Being a "tree man" I'm always on the lookout for something beyond the ordinary, that is if any tree could be in good conscience labeled, ordinary. I suppose, extremely different and beautiful by comparison to our normal local species would be a better description of my search.
Well, I think I've found it (extremely different and beautiful) in Naples Florida. To the best of my ability to determine, it is either a Yellow Poinciana or a Yellow Tabebuia. I am at this point leaning toward the latter. It is locally known as the Yellow Tab.
Just a note for all concerned, as soon as "global warming" has its full effect in The Great Wooded South, I'm planting me at least one of these. - Billy Joe Fudge
