It is also the national flower of The Bahamas.
This plant prefer full sun to light shade exposure but it is frost tolerant during winter. It is drought tolerant and grows well in warm climates. Propagation is by seeds or stem cuttings.
The flowers which are fragrant, attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Honey bees are attracted to it but the honey produced by the yellow trumpet bush's nectar is poisonous.
