QUESTION: Hi Gill,
The last time I wrote you had asked me to send the pictures to see if you can identify the shrub.  I notice your last replies say you answered the question, but I have not received any answer after I sent those pictures.  Did you have any idea from the pictures (I was thinking maybe a trumpet bell) Thanks - I appreciate it.

Answer
Hi Patty

I sent a reply when I received the images (a thank you and a request to give me a couple of days to do some research).  I sent the final answer last night.  In case you haven't seen it - I said that I am 99.9% sure that what you have is indeed a trumpet bell - the botanical name is Tecoma stans and I think the variety is 'Augustata'.  I also suggested that if the frost damage is unsightly you can prune it back in spring.

One again, my apologies for keeping you waiting and thank you for your patience.
