This is a fast growing sprawling plant that, if left unpinned, puts out long stems and becomes almost a vine that needs some kind of support. However, it can be trained even into a standard little tree. If kept clipped, it can be used as a low hedge. It has attractive, dark green foliage and frequent displays of long, tubular flowers that may be yellow or bright orange at the ends of the stems. Cape Honeysuckle needs very well-drained soil and prefers full sun, but will bloom in filtered light; flowering is best is slightly cooler climates. Propagation is by means of seeds, cuttings, or branches that root when they lie on the ground.
