Tecoma X Sierra Apricot®

Tecoma X Sierra Apricot®
Sierra Apricot® Esperanza, PP#20246

This petite Esperanza delivers a powerful punch of apricot color in the summer months. This garden gem is smaller than previous selections, with a compact and dense form. Because it is virtually seed free, this clone blooms continuously throughout the summer months with large clusters of bell-shaped flowers. Hummingbirds love the tubular blossoms! In mild climates Sierra Apricot® remains mostly evergreen, but is deciduous below temperatures of 25°F. Simply cut the stems back after frost, and plants will flush out quickly in the late spring.
