Description

Think of Chicklet Orange tecoma as a long-blooming trumpet vine in a non-invasive, compact shrub form. Rich orange panicles provide a festive display of color, both as a garden shrub in hot areas or as a patio plant in cooler climes.

Soil

Any well-drained soil will do; tolerates moderate drought once established.

Pruning

Blooms on new wood - prune in early spring, after the plant has leafed out, if desired. However, this dwarf selection needs less pruning than conventional tecoma.

Uses

Ideal for containers in both hot and cold climates; can be incorporated into landscapes and flower gardens in zone 8 and warmer.

Growing Tips

Shrubby habit needs little pruning or training to develop into a lush, full plant with abundant blooms.
