    1. Mine has gotten virtually no care and no supplemental water this year, but, for whatever reason, it is gloriously blooming this fall. The hummingbirds love it!

  2. The flowers are seem like a hotter version of the coral flowers on Trumpet Honeysuckle.

  3. Many of our autumn blooms are very orange and trumpet-shaped, mostly, I think, to attract those migrating hummers.

  4. That's what I need to get. I mistakenly bought a Major Wheeler honeysuckle and it's pathetic. I see they are Zone 4 to 8, so perhaps it's just too hot here. I didn't realize. I think I'll have to rip it out and get one of these to replace it.

    1. The Cape honeysuckle definitely thrives in our climate. You just have to be sure to give it plenty of room because it will get big!
