In the summer of Texas, golden star Esperanza is one of the best plants to bloom in full sun. In most neighborhoods, deer do not eat flowers or leaves, and are free of disease and pests.
Esperanza is included in all summer plans because it does not require additional irrigation to produce the tubular yellow flowers that grow in the hottest part of the summer. It is also a favorite nectar for hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollen. The Esperanza, also known as the Texas Yellow Bells, grows up to 7 feet in height with small flowers and is a gray-haired butterfly.
