Scientific Name: Justicia spicigera, Justicia ghiesbreghtiana

Common Names: Mexican Honeysuckle, Orange Plume

Overview: Mexican Honeysuckle, scientifically known as Justicia spicigera, is a beautiful flowering shrub that originates from Mexico and Central America. This vibrant plant is renowned for its clusters of tubular, orange flowers that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The Mexican Honeysuckle blooms profusely throughout the warm months, adding a burst of color to gardens and landscapes. Its glossy, dark green leaves provide an attractive backdrop to the striking flowers. This hardy shrub is adaptable and can tolerate a range of soil types, from well-drained to slightly moist. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and requires regular watering to establish and maintain its growth. Mexican Honeysuckle is a popular choice for borders, hedges, or as a standalone specimen plant.

Description

Year-Round Blooms Offer Color to Count On

The Mexican Honeysuckle has bright orange tubular flower clusters that will delight you – and the hummingbirds – all year long. The shrub grows 2 to 3 ft. tall, and spreads from 3 to 6 ft. wide. Its soft, velvety leaves will become larger in partial shade. But, of course, some sun is needed for best flowering.

The plant is not related to other honeysuckles, though there are some visual similarities to explain its namesake. This perennial is fairly drought tolerant, but will flourish with watering during dry spells. Happily, it’s not at all fussy about soil, as long as there is adequate drainage.
