Arizona Yellowbells (Tecoma stans)


Arizona Yellowbells

Tecoma stans

Arizona Yellowbells feature big clusters of long, trumpet-shaped yellow flowers that can make any landscape pop with vibrant color! We love the way the bright yellow flowers complement the bright green leaves! Tecoma Stans are a popular shrub here in Southern California and are often used along a fence or defining borders in neighborhoods throughout the area. It grows well in warmer climates and has a fast growth rate. Homeowners looking for a quick growing shrub will love this plant! Birds, butterflies and hummingbirds love it, too!

Yellow bells love the heat and thrive where there’s full sun exposure. We love to plant them as a floral accent or use them as a specimen around large patios, where their colorful flowers have a way of making people feel happier. This really is a great medium to large accent shrub ideal for a large space - they’re a welcome addition to any landscape that could use a colorful background screen! Once established, Tecoma stans has low to moderate watering needs and is relatively easy to maintain. Some people choose to prune off the dead blooms to speed up blooming cycles, which is heaviest in spring and fall.

Interesting fact: Yellow bells has been used by Native Americans in the Southwest for bow making, bee fodder and in medicines! It’s also the official flower of the United States Virgin Islands!

Palm Paradise has been growing these beauties for over 20 years. We’ve been growing premium quality plants from our private stock, so we can assure that ours are of the highest quality available. We recommend feeding with our Super Charged Moon Juice fertilizer to optimize their performance. The Tecoma stans we grow will have the brightest yellow bell flowers that are sure to add curb appeal and value to any property!
