This evergreen shrub is native to Mexico and into South America. Mexican Honeysuckle has oval, velvety, medium green leaves. Bright orange tubular flowers are borne in clusters all year in warmer areas and during summers in colder regions. It performs best in filtered sun and well-drained soil. Moderate irrigation is beneficial, but too much will induce chlorosis. Prune as desired to maintain a more compact form. In areas with frost, a late winter pruning can help clean up the plant before new growth starts.
