Chicklet Orange Tecoma Care
Chicklet™ Orange Tecoma Esperanza needs full sun and is happiest in sandy, well-drained soil. Water it only when the soil gets dry. In the landscape, fertilize in early spring as the plant breaks dormancy, using a slow-release fertilizer formulated for trees and shrubs.
The bushes bloom on new wood, so prune in early spring before the plant breaks dormancy and starts to leaf out. You do not have to deadhead the flowers for continuous blooms.
Chicklet Orange Tecoma Spacing
Chicklet™ Orange Tecoma Esperanza grows to a height of 3-6 feet and will spread out 2-4 feet, so is considered a medium shrub. Give it 2-4 feet between plants, center on center. That will help air circulation and sunlight exposure as well as giving the roots enough room to grow.
