Tecoma stans (Esperanza, Dwarf)

Esperanza, Dwarf

Tecoma stans 'Nana'

Dwarf cultivar of the popular blooming perennial shrub native to Texas and Mexico. Bright green leaves are complimented with the multitude of yellow trumpet shape flowers appearing on the new growth from spring to fall. Esperanza is a tough and hardy plant ideal for any Texas landscape. It appreciates well-drained soils despite the quality it's grown in.

Pruning is not necessary till the first frost when the entire plant is killed back to the ground; good mulching will allow the roots to survive and return in the spring with vigor. In north Texas, it is treated as an annual.
