GOLDEN TRUMPET-SHAPED BLOSSOMS ATTRACT BUTTERFLIES AND HUMMINGBIRDS
The Yellow Elder Esperanza is an amazingly flexible option. Looking for a tree? It can be a tree. Looking for a shade bush or a trellis? It can do that, too. If you’re looking to bring it indoors, simply trim it down into a small bush.
You’ll fall in love with the Yellow Elder’s brilliant yellow flowers that keep on coming, especially if you live in warmer climates. Its lovely profile can soften a more formal landscape, and blends beautifully with various styles of architecture.
Fast growing, its branches can appear long and droopy, and will do best when protected from strong winds. Plant the Yellow Elder with plenty of room on each side, so it won’t overtake other plants or obstruct the flow of your yard. It works in different kinds of sun exposure, but more sunshine brings more flowers. Once established, the Yellow Elder can be drought tolerant. Make sure to let the soil dry out between watering’s.
