We love cape honeysuckle! This tropical flowering shrub flowers on and off all year long, producing flamboyant clusters of bold red, orange, or yellow flowers that are irresistible to hummingbirds. Happily, cape honeysuckle is more than just a pretty face: It’s also a cinch to grow, so you can enjoy its charms without feeling like you’re always working to keep it up.
Grow cape honeysuckle in full sun. Once established, it’s drought-tolerant, but cape honeysuckle grows best when it gets regular water — especially in container gardens. It’s best to water it when the top inch or so of the soil is dry. Fertilize cape honeysuckle in spring and summer. Use any garden fertilizer and follow the directions on the packaging. You can prune cape honeysuckle at any time; it responds well to light pruning. Note: Cape honeysuckle is not intended for human or animal consumption; leave that to the birds and butterflies!
Pour 2 cups or 500ml every day only when the the soil begins to dry out. Do not over-water as it leads to root-rot. Water in early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler and direct sun will not cook off the moisture before it can seep down to the roots.
