Can someone please hybridize a white Tecoma Stans?
Lovely border with Yellow Bells, not my own. Pam's post over at Digging about the pink variety of the standard flame-red Turk's Cap, reminded me that what I would dearly love is a cultivar of Tecoma Stans that is snowy white. I can't find any such thing on the internet and have not seen one in the nurseries. But I can dream and if you are a plant developer, please hear my plea. Yellow Bells are blooming PROFUSELY in this 100+ degree heat all over town. But I can't get behind that color no matter how I try. I'd even settle for pale yellow or cream.
After 10 years gardening on solid rock in Rollingwood, I moved into a 40's cottage in the North Loop area spring 2007. The little postage stamp yard is black clay and no one had ever dug a single flower bed. After visiting Key West a few years ago, I came back inspired by the little frame cottages, white painted railings, and rustling palm leaves. So the plan is: desert tropical cottage garden.
