Cape Honeysuckle (Tecoma capensis)


Cape Honeysuckle

Tecoma capensis

Grow them as a vine or shrub, either way this Cape Honeysuckle brings a burst of bright orange trumpet-shaped flowers that can add some much needed curb appeal. These are one of the most versatile plants for any landscape! From South Africa, we just love how this fast growing evergreen looks as an attractive privacy hedge, screening out those unwanted views in style and keeping your home private. We also love that Tecoma capensis has self-clinging branches that can be pruned and shaped to form an accent shrub with a colorful eye-catching appearance that everyone will love!

Cape Honeysuckle looks just as amazing growing in containers as it does in a landscape. They love to grow right here in our local climate where they can thrive in the warm, sunny locations and on the coast. They make beautiful patio trees and love to grow with full to partial sun exposures, so place them on a spot where you can kick back and take in the colorful sight. These are waterwise plants and once established will have low to moderate watering needs. Everyone loves how easy they are to care for and we recommend feeding them with our Super Charged Moon Juice for optimal results!

We recommend planting this exuberant Cape Honeysuckle for both urban and wildlife gardens, so come visit our huge nursery and pick the finest quality specimens you’ll find anywhere! We custom grow these plants using only our premium quality private stock and have been doing it this way for over 20 years, so we can assure their superiority. No one else does what we do, come experience the difference!
