Tabebuia flowers
white tabebuia


Pink and white Tabebuia flowers are blooming on trees along the Tawau Waterfront, painting colourful seaside scenes for the appreciation of those who pass by.

It is a yearly occurrence, almost like the cherry blossom season in Japan.

These flowers are actually called ‘tabebuia’ or ‘pink tecoma’. Tabebuia is a genus of flowering plant in the family of Bignoniaceae that blooms during hot and dry days.

The genus of Tabebuia produces flowers with a tissue-like texture in colours ranging from pure white to shades of pink. They do not have any scent.


The flowers require a distinct dry season to bloom. When the hot and dry season arrives in Borneo in the months of April to June, it will induce the trees to bloom, but not all at the same time. The flowers only last about a week.

It's a beautiful sight to watch because of its profuse flowering and when the flowers float down by the sea breeze, they cover the ground below like a dense soft pale pink (or white) carpet.

Tabebuia can be found planted along the roadside in towns and cities of Borneo. Tabebuia trees are planted in parks, in residential areas and road sides. Their annual flowering add colour to our living environment.

Tawau Waterfront
TEN YEARS HENCE - From greenery to dying of environment

1- A roll of beautiful trees in Tawau is now dead

2- Another roll of green trees is now half dead

3- A roll of bushy shade-trees were gone for car park extension

4- A junk car is still at the exact location after 10 years occupying precious parking space.

5- But blue sea and white clouds retain their colours.
