Tecoma genus (Trumpet bush). This genus consists of mainly evergreen shrubs and small trees which will grow naturally in tropical areas, and are grown for their clusters of showy yellow to orange, tubular to trumpet-shaped flowers from early spring to late summer. Their leaves are simple or compound with an odd number of leaflets. They are frost tender, min 10-13C and will prefer well drained soil and full light. You should water the potted specimens moderately, but hardly at all in the winter. Propagation is by seed in the spring or by semi-ripe cuttings in the summer.
