Tecoma capensis-Cape Honeysuckle

The Cape honeysuckle is an evergreen shrub that grows to 8 ft. tall with pruning, or a vine that reaches 20 ft. with support. The leaflets are shiny green, and the fall-winter flowers are orange tubular shaped. This shrub can tolerate sun or part shade, heat, wind, salt air. The Cape honeysuckle is drought tolerant and attracts hummingbirds
