Yellow bell golden trumpet flowers: This fast-growing, easy-care plant grows to about 3 feet during its first year.
It can often reach a height and width of 8 feet or more at maturity, depending on the climate.

This plant is often grown as an annual. It is a shrubby plant also known as yellow trumpet flower or esperanza, yellow bell (Tecoma stans).  It produces large clusters of intense yellow blooms throughout most of the year.

These flowers need to be watered deeply every other week during warm, dry weather.
Let a garden hose run slowly at the base of the plant until the soil is saturated to a depth of 12 to 24 inches.
Thereafter, let the soil dry completely before watering again.

Yellow bell golden trumpet plants thrive with little moisture. Apply a dilute solution of a general-purpose,
water-soluble fertilizer when you water yellow bell that is growing in a container.

Space applications about two weeks apart through the spring and summer for container plants; those planted in
the ground need light fertilization only every six weeks or so.

Mix the fertilizer at a rate of no more than 2 to 3 teaspoons in 1 gallon of water.

To promote continued blooming throughout the season, pinch off seed pods that appear after flowers wilt and turn brown. If you notice spider mites or aphids, spray the plant with insecticidal soap spray.

Although yellow bell is extremely pest-resistant, it is sometimes bothered by these common sucking pests.

Mix a concentrated insecticidal soap product at a rate of 2 teaspoons to 2.5 tablespoons of solution in 1 gallon of water, depending on the severity of the infestation.

Spray the plant thoroughly, coating the bottoms and tops of the leaves.  Repeat as needed every four to five days.
