Cape Honeysuckle

Cape Honeysuckle is a rangy vine-like shrub with pretty glossy compound leaves like Trumpet Vine.  The very showy orange flowers are liked by hummingbirds.  It can be trained up or allowed to cascade.   Where borderline hardy cut back plants after the frost kills the tops, mound 10 inches of coarse sand over the stubs. mulch over with pine straw.  As the weather warms, remove this covering to allow new shoots to emerge. Given rich soil and ample water, these plants will thrive during hot summers.
