Showy, Apricot-Orange, Trumpet-Shaped Blooms
Why Cape Honeysuckle Vines?
Fill your garden with the vibrant orange blooms of the Cape Honeysuckle. Plant as a shrub or train as a vine and watch it elegantly scale up porches, fences, or outdoor walls.
In spring, the Cape Honeysuckle blooms radiant clusters of trumpet-shaped, yellow, apricot, red, or orange flowers that light up any garden. And its green, fern-like foliage contains 5 to 9 leaflets.
This beautiful evergreen shrub with sprawling, vine-like stems grows best in warm, tropical climates and can reach anywhere from 13 to 25 inches tall for an attention-grabbing statement in any yard.
The Cape Honeysuckle produces long, thin elongated fruit capsules that contain numerous seeds easily dispersed by the wind. This plant has a sweet, aromatic scent, and the nectar of the flowers attracts hummingbirds and butterflies for enjoyable springtime wildlife viewing.
Incredibly low-maintenance, the Cape Honeysuckle is easy-to-grow, self-cleaning, and has no serious disease or insect problems. Plant as a show-stopping centerpiece in your garden containers or congregate them together in mass plantings or hedges. This fiery honeysuckle can even be planted to climb a trellis to add even more texture and color to your landscape.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Honeysuckle in a spot that receives full sun but is safe from cold, dry winds. Plant in a hole that is twice as wide but only as deep as the root ball. Do not over-cover the top of the root. Water to settle.
You can also plant your Honeysuckle as the centerpiece or accent in a container arrangement, or train it around an arbor or fence using garden ties or twine.
2. Watering: This vine can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the vine weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. After a couple of years, you only need to water the tree during very dry spells. Avoid overwatering if you live in a humid climate.
3. Pruning: Pruning is not necessary - however, you can trim after flowering to maintain shape.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
