Description of Tecomaria

Tecomaria, also known as Tecoma or Bignonia capensis, stands as a climbing plant belonging to the bignonia family. Its intensely colored orange-red flowers notably contrast with the dark green of its foliage. Its vigorous growth is reflected in its woody branches that require some control to maintain their shape.

History and Origin

This species traces its roots to the bignonia family and has captivated gardeners and enthusiasts alike due to its ornamental beauty. Originating from specific geographic regions, it has gained popularity for its resilience and ability to adapt to different environments.

Curiosities about Tecomaria

Beyond its striking color, Tecomaria can be used as a climber, but its splendor shines when used in trimmed hedges or as a shrub, even when attached to walls and surfaces. Varieties of this plant exist, such as the "aurea" with yellow tones and the "apricot" with peachy hues, each exhibiting unique foliage characteristics.

Caring for Tecomaria

Watering this plant should be moderate, avoiding waterlogging the soil. Once established, it shows remarkable resistance to dry periods, making it an adaptable and low-maintenance choice.
