    Yagrumo hembra (Cecropia peltata), also called  trumpet-tree, is a rapidly growing neotropical tree, an important  secondary species that is common in Puerto Rico. It is an early  invader of forested areas subject to natural or human  disturbances and is conspicuous due to its spreading crown and  large peltate leaves 30 to 50 cm (12 to 20 in) in diameter, with  silver-white lower surfaces.
