Huge clusters of 1-1/2" tubular orange-yellow flowers are borne profusely throughout summer and fall on this vigorous shrub-like perennial and attract hummingbirds, bees, and other pollinators. The flowers are sweetly fragrant at night and likely attract hummingbird moths. Yellow Cestrum becomes large and shrub like in mild winter climates whereas in the coldest portions of its range, like zone 8B, it will often freeze to the ground and return in spring. A loose breathable mulch will also help to ensure that your Yellow (aka ' Gold') Cestrum returns each spring.

Orange Cestrum can be grown as a container plant where not hardy but regular pruning may be required to keep this tropical shrub in bounds. It can also be trained as an espalier in areas where it doesn't freeze back.
