Tecoma alata, also known as the Orange Trumpet flower is a large shrub or a vine or creeper native to Peru. Growing anywhere from 5-10ft tall, this plant is an eye catcher with its bright yellow and orange flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Beautiful loose clusters of orange trumpet-like blooms are borne from mid-summer to fall on this upright to spreading woody perennial. It grows best in full sun to semi-shade and needs regular watering. Once it reaches maturity it is fairly hardy, able to withstand temperatures as low as 30°F for a short period of time. This beauty can be grown in USDA Zones 8-11. Dwarf variety hybrid is very slow growing and has well-branched with compact habit.
When grown in a pot the Tecoma alata will require the same full sun position. Make sure to provide it with the same regular watering and fertilizer applications to keep it healthy. What's great about keeping it in a pot is that you can move it indoors to a cool, protected area during the cooler months so it is able to withstand temperatures lower than 30°F when grown in cold regions. The beauty of this plant's size means it is perfect as a container plant and a great addition to your porch or patio.
Lydia is a product of Tecoma breeding project of George Hull in Phoenix. She is indeed a beautiful everbloomer that can be expected to be in bloom from very early spring until frost.
Compared to other yellow Tecomas, Lydia is a very compact, dwarf shrub, flowers are clear, soft lemon-yellow color with white throat. Unlike traditional varieties, it is a sterile hybrid that doesn't produce messy seeds that most tecomas do.
Tecomas do appreciate a bit of extra fertilizer so monthly during the growing season, a small application will induce more new growth and flowering.
