Roble blanco or white-cedar (Tabebuia heterophyl1a) is a small- to medium-size, mostly deciduous tree with showy pink flowers. It grows on any soil type and will adapt to poor or degraded soils if moisture is available. Valued as a timber tree, it has been widely planted for both reforestation and ornamentation. The tough strong wood is used for many products and is favored for boat building in the Lesser Antilles.
