Late (or non) blooming Cape Honeysuckle
Someone gave me a baby Cape Honeysuckle (Tecomaria capensis) a few years ago at a swap. It does great in a huge pot on the deck, but if (when) it does flower it's not until mid-Sept and then we get to enjoy it for maybe a month before it's time to cut it back so it can overwinter in the basement in a semi-dormant state.
Is anyone else growing these and getting flowers much earlier? We don't have any way of letting it grow normally when we bring it in. Tried that last year, and we did keep the flowers going for another month or so, but the plant was so messy (and eventually lost all it's leaves anyway) that I won't do that again.
