Tecomaria capensis

Cape Honeysuckle

Only one type of these tropical vinelike shrubs, Tecomaria capensis, is commonly grown. Train it to climb along trellises, fences or walls. Plant it on steep banks, or prune it to form 6- to 8-foot shrubs or hedges. Its scarlet funnel-shaped flowers sit upon its lacy foliage. Seed pods follow flowers. These tough plants tolerate some drought. Start from seeds or cuttings. Support rapid-growing plants. Prune annually after flowers bloom to encourage new growth and future blossoms.
