Tecomaria Capensis

07 Jan 2017
Overcast 11°C / 52°F

Tecomaria capensis is growing in my garden in zone 9b. It flowers at least twice a year and is a very dramatic plant with its dark green foliage and orange flowers. The flowers come out in a spike and they resemble a salvia flower except that it is at least three times as big. The flowers last for about a month. The bush tends to grow limbs about 20 ft. or more long and if unchecked these limbs touch the ground where it will root at the node and another plant will grow. I keep mine in a shrub form and have to keep it in check for branches growing on the ground.
