Downtown Culiacán is painted pink!

It is the season of Amapa trees in Culiacán, this is the favorite tree of the culichis, that year after year decorates the streets of the city center with its pink flowers, in the middle of the spring.

This year the social networks are not full of photos of pink Amapa trees since the streets of Centro are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Amapa tree

Tabebuia impetiginosa (amapa morada) Tabebuia impetiginosa is a widespread hardwood tree of the New World tropics, extending from southern Sonora, in northern Mexico, all the way down to Argentina.

In Sinaloa, Amapas grow 15 to 50 feet tall with a straight trunk that is usually unbranched to about half the tree’s height.
