Yellow bells are a fast-growing evergreen shrub with slender, gray-brown branches and clusters of striking, tubular 2 1/2-inch bright yellow flowers that continue through the heat of the summer. Shiny, green foliage offer a beautiful backdrop for the shrub's vibrant blooms, which attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. Also known as esperanza or yellow elder, these plants produce long, green seedpods after flowering that act as a food source for small animals. Yellow bells is a great, medium to large accent shrub for large landscaped spaces. Mostly lush green, but can look 'sparse' during periods of winter cold or high summer heat but is quick to recover.
