I am tempted to grow this in our yard, but hesitate because of reading this:

"Honey bees are attracted to it, but-unlike most flowering plants-the *honey produced from* Yellow Trumpetbush's nectar/pollen is POISONOUS." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tecoma_stans

"Yellow trumpet bush (Tecoma stans) ... is poisonous, yet bees are attracted to it. The bees are not killed by Tecoma stans, but *the honey that comes from it IS poisonous.* [Although] animals can ... eat yellow trumpet bush (Tecoma stans) and it does not harm them."

Also called Honey Bird Bush. Drought tolerant, Cold hardy to 28 degrees F. Have seen Hummingbirds, Honey Bees, Bumble Bees, and Butterflies feeding on this bush. Mine is 8'-10' tall, and diameter at base is 5-7 feet. Has weeping tendency. Enjoy having it in my garden. Can handle a lot of Decomposed Granite in soil.
