TECOMA SMITHII (TRUMPET BUSH, YELLOW BELLS)
Tecoma X Smithii is spectacular when in flower and can be the focal point for a garden. Orange Bells grows to 12 feet and can be trained as a small tree or large shrub. Tecoma X Smithii is very drought tolerant once established but prefers a periodic drink. I have planted plants in full sun and partial shade to good success. Tecoma X Smithii will bloom better in the sunny location but survive better in the shade if no irrigation is provided. Tecoma X Smithii is a great addition to the hummingbird garden. Tecoma X Smithii is hardy into the mid-low twenties.
