Delicious Orange Esperanza

Family: Bignoniaceae (big-no-nih-AY-see-ee)
Genus: Tecoma (tek-OH-muh)
Cultivar: Orange Jubilee
Synonym:Tecoma alata
Tip of the hat to Dave's Garden for this awesome link Orange Esperanza

Our hummingbirds LOVE these, in both the front yard and the back yard.   We've got the yellow trumpet flower plants too (Tecoma stans) but the Colibri prefer the orange ones.  They're flying around particularly acrobatically and pugnaciously today... must be mating season.
