Cape Town™ Yellow Tecomaria

Tecomaria PPAF

Until recently, Tecomarias grew huge, bloomed only in spring and fall, and were covered with unattractive seed pods. New breeding has produced these brightly blooming Tecomarias; unlike traditional varieties, these stay more compact and bloom from early spring until frost.
