What is Sparky Tecoma

Sparky Tecoma offers gorgeous clusters of yellow, bell-shaped flowers with red-orange centers that bloom from early summer through late fall. It injects lovely color and shape wherever it’s planted.

This beautiful flower stays more compact than other Tecoma varieties. And its upright habit allows it to fit into tighter spaces, meaning you can plant it just about anywhere comfortably!

Plus, since it thrives in dry, hot climates, it won’t wilt in even the hottest of temperatures. You can enjoy stunning color amidst the summer heat! The Sparky Tecoma can usually be found growing wildly in AZ because of how warm it stays there year-round. 

This plant’s fast growth rate and versatility in the landscape makes it perfect for containers, gardens, parks, or even as a focal point. It’s ideal for adding an elegant splash of color, all while attracting pollinators. Watch as hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies flock to your yard.
