Comments: This cape honeysuckle can be either a vine or a sprawling shrub depending on how it is managed in the landscape. The cluster of bright yellow-orange flowers that bloom over a long period is the main feature regardless of how the plant is trained in the garden. Provide full sunlight and a well drained soil. Reported to withstand considerable drought for short periods.
