Description

Tecoma climber pink is Botanically known as Tecoma capensis from the Bignoniaceae family. Common names are Tecoma Climber Pink, Rosy Trumpet Tree, etc. It is a perennial fast-growing evergreen climber covered in masses of pink trumpet-shaped flowers during spring and summer and reduced flowering in winter & it requires trellising or chain-like fencing or arbors for growing over it.  It can be grown in big pots/containers that remain in bush condition. It is a vigorous, rambling shrub with shiny green leaves and it may grow up to 2-4m hight and spread more than 2.5m. It is an evergreen plant in warm climate areas but loses its leaves in colder areas. Flowering time for this shrub is very erratic and often it flowers all year round. Flowers are tubular and bird pollinated, attracting nectar-feeding birds, especially sunbirds. Tecomaria capensis is an ornamental garden plant commonly used for screening and decorative purposes. . It is often planted specifically to attract birds and butterflies.

Sunlight – It loves the sun and will appreciate over eight hours of sunlight a day, if possible. It can survive when planted in partial shade, but it will not bloom to its full potential. It does not do well when planted in full shade.

Watering – Mature plants will tolerate dry areas, but they will also grow in moist conditions. Even though they’re able to survive periods without rain, they do appreciate occasional watering during a particularly lengthy dry spell.

Plant Care – Always check the soil moisture and keep the plant hydrated all time. Do not over water it.
