Cape Honeysuckle is a versatile, evergreen vining shrub with a lush, tropical aura. Red-orange, trumpet-shaped flowers stand out dramatically against glossy, dark green foliage; providing a particularly exciting show from fall until the first frost, when blooming is most prolific. This shrub is a hummingbird favorite, serving up generous amounts of nectar when many of their other favorite “diners” are closed for the season. With proper training and pruning, Cape Honeysuckle can be grown as a shrub, vine, small patio tree, and even a groundcover! It makes a fantastic wall of greenery when trained against a fence or trellis, does great in containers, and is useful as an informal hedge or foundation planting.
