This stand-out shrub is a marvel of tolerance, toughness and beauty. Prune it into a small tree or a hedge, thin it to a vine, shape it to an entryway shrub or leave it to grow to its naturally arching 10x12’ habit and it will still bloom prolifically from Spring to the end of Fall! Lovely golden-yellow trumpet-shaped blooms on 4” with striking red and orange bases make it eminently garden worthy. Happy in almost any well-draining soil, tolerates humidity and fog, and will even come back after a killing freeze! And on top of all that, it is a huge attractor of butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and other wild birds! Glory be! Plant in a sunny location and provide average water and occasional compost and it will reward you in spades year in and year out!
