Water

This plant is drought-resistant once established. Initially, water it regularly until it establishes a strong root system. Thereafter, reduce the frequency, providing deep waterings occasionally, especially during dry periods.

Soil and Fertilization

Cape Honeysuckle is adaptable to different soil types, but it thrives best in fertile, well-draining soils with a pH between 6.0 and 7.5. For optimum growth and flowering, fertilize it with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season.

Pruning

Cape Honeysuckle is versatile; it can be grown as a shrub, a hedge, or trained as a vine. Regular pruning is essential to maintain the desired shape and size. Prune older stems and dead or damaged branches to encourage new growth and flowering. After the main blooming season, a more severe pruning can be done to maintain size and encourage bushier growth.

Pest and Diseases

Cape Honeysuckle is generally hardy but watch for aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies. These can be managed with insecticidal soaps or neem oil. Regularly inspect the plant for signs of fungal infections like powdery mildew and treat promptly with fungicides if needed.

Propagation

Propagate Cape Honeysuckle through seeds, cuttings, or layering. For cuttings, select a healthy, young stem, and plant it in a well-draining medium, keeping it moist until roots develop. Seeds can be sown directly in the ground or in pots, but they require patience, as germination may take time.
