St. John Flora: Poui Tree

Fallen flowers of the Poui tree at St. John’s Caneel Bay Resort

The wood of the Poui tree (Tabebuia chrysantha) is strong and durable and is resistant to dampness, decay, fire and termites. Consequently it has been used for docks, piers, outdoor furniture, park benches and boardwalks including the boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

St. John Weather

Same thing but a different nuance:

(glass half full)
Scattered showers, mainly before noon. Mostly sunny, with a high near 87.

From Weather Underground (glass half empty)
Overcast with rain showers in the morning, then partly cloudy with rain showers.

  1. Huh? I’m used to great photos from you Gerry! That’s a miserable image of a Poui tree. I mean it’s nice as another view, but… I have one of a tree in full bloom… I could share that with you if you’d like, but how?

  2. It wasn’t the tree I was interested in it was the carpet of flowers. Nonetheless, I’d love to use your image or link to it if it’s on the web somewhere. So send the image or the link and I’ll post it.
