Tecoma stans - Yellow Trumpet Bush

Tecoma stans requires little supplemental water once established and is quite tolerant of high heat. The Yellow Trumpet Bush does well in full sun but will still bloom in the shade of other trees. Tecoma stans is a great addition to the hummingbird garden. Tecoma stans is Winter hardy at least into the high teens, though the foliage and branch tips are damaged in the mid 20°s F.
