Tecoma 'Red Hot' PP31,610 (Red Hot Trumpetbush) A compact shrub to 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. It has dark green pinnately compound leaves with leaflets having dentate margins. Over a long period from early spring to late fall appear the lightly fragrant trumpet shaped flower that first emerge a deep crimson red color with yellow centers and mature to a lighter orange red. The flowers produce few seed pods so is less messy. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil and irrigate infrequently to occasionally - has proven fairly drought tolerant even in desert locations. Is cold hard to 15 F. Deadhead flowers for a prolonged flowering and prune in fall to shape as needed. This plants smaller size makes it a great choice for smaller gardens. Attractive to butterflies and is a magnet for hummingbirds yet seems moderately resistant to deer and rabbit predation. This hybrid comes from Tucson-based Civano Nursery Inc and likely involves hybrid parentage derived from the African plant, Tecoma capensis (previously known as Tecomaria capensis) and the North American Yellow Bells, Tecoma stans.
