The Bells of Fire Tecoma is a stunning, fast-growing flower with gorgeous color! Its red-orange, trumpet-shaped blooms and green, upright foliage with a fern-like appearance deliver on flair and pizzazz in any space it’s planted.

This flower grows best in warm, tropical climates, but it can be used as an annual in cooler areas. If you want a long-lasting plant, this is the one for you! It blooms from spring until the first frost.

Not only is it easy-to-grow, but it’s self-cleaning as well! This Tecoma, also commonly called Esperanza, is a low-maintenance color option for your home or garden. Just plant it somewhere with full to partial sun.

You can create your own butterfly garden with this lovely plant! It’s excellent at attracting hummingbirds and other pollinators as well, making it the perfect springtime activity to watch as they flock to your flowers.

And since it’s compact in size, this flower is great for containers, mass plantings, and hedges. Plus, it’s drought and heat-tolerant, making it a strong, hardy addition to your green space.
