New Xeriscape Plant for Phoenix Desert Gardens

Tecoma x 'Sparky'We love those Yellow Bells in our Phoenix desert gardens, right?  Most have bright green foliage and they bloom nearly all year long.  Well, here’s a new cultivar you may like called Sparky (Tecoma x ‘Sparky’).

This beautiful xeriscape plant is locally grown by V & P Nurseries, it likes full to part sun and a moderate amount of water.  Its mature size is about 5′ x 5′  and it blooms from spring through fall, although most Tecomas I’ve seen will bloom most of the year.  The blooms are yellow with what looks like a waterfall of maroon going into the throat…STUNNING!  And, of course, the hummingbirds love it!

Even better is that the plant is named for Sparky, the Arizona State University Sun Devil mascot, and a portion of the sales goes to the Fund for Landscape Architecture Students at ASU.  So, go out and add this little devil to your desert garden and help a future horticulturist at the same time.
