You know how some people are described as ‘natural beauties’? They look great without makeup and their hair only pulled up into a ponytail. Well, I am not describing myself. It takes some work in front of the mirror before I will venture outside 😉
But, I absolutely love using plants that are what I would call ‘natural beauties’ because they look great without having to fuss over them. Now, I do love to be out in the garden, but I do not particularly like digging, dividing, pruning and deadheading often – especially in the summer months. And so, many of the plants in my garden are ‘natural beauties’. They look fantastic with minimal effort.
I would like to share with you, periodically, some of my favorite ‘natural beauties’. Today, I would like to introduce you to Yellow Bells (Tecoma stans var. stans).
Yellow Bells grows into a large shrub (6 ft. high and 4 ft. wide), with beautiful leaves and clusters of yellow, trumpet shaped flowers.
