How to Grow

Grow in full sun for heaviest flowering. Keep soil consistently moist but not saturated. Prune lightly after flowering to shape and encourage new growth. Fertilize every 2-3 months during the growing season.

Care Tips

Water 1-2 times per week, allowing the top few inches of soil to dry out between waterings. Mist leaves occasionally. Bring containers indoors if temps fall below 45°F.


Cape Honeysuckle Orange makes a beautiful flowering hedge, screen, or container plant. It also shines trained up arbors, trellises, and other structures as a flowering vine.

Planting Tips

Space plants 3-4 feet apart in well-draining soil and full sun. Dig a hole twice the container width and backfill with soil. Water thoroughly after planting and use trellis for support.


Prune lightly after flowering to shape and invigorate growth. Fertilize every 2-3 months during the growing season. Repot container plants every 2-3 years.
