Tecoma stans var. angustatum

Yellow Elder

Tecoma stans var. stans is a shrub or small tree in subtropical areas.  The variety stans is less hardy but frequently used in tropical or subtropical regions.  This is the variety angustatum which is native in west Texas, Arizona and southward.  It is a more cold hardy shrub but still may kill back in winter in zone 8.  It may behave as perennial in parts of zone 8-9 where it can be cut back after the frost kills the tops and mulched well for the winter.  Given rich soil and ample water, these plants will thrive during hot summers and provide an abundance of bright yellow bell-like flowers.
