Yellow bells Overview

A genus of over 10 evergreen trees, vines and shrubs native to the Americas. Grown for their showy trumpet-shaped flowers, most are yellow in colour but some species are known to produce pink flowers and all species contain latex. Leaves are oppositely arranged or form whorls and flowers have 5 lobed sepals surrounding them. Naturally these species grow along riversides and other moist, bright open areas, disliking shade and requiring supported stems for optimal growth.
