Tecoma is a beautiful shrub - I'd love one if I had the climate.

Meanie:

It most likely would be root-hardy where you live. It does need very hot weather to bloom well (the only drawback where you live, I'm guessing).

Very much the biggest problem. I can provide sheltered spots to get stuff through the winter easily enough.

I'm guessing you would get some flowers during summer, though (this tree is related to Jacaranda, African Tulip tree, Catalpa, [Bignoniaceae family]).
