Generalities Plant Bignonia Capensis:

The Bignonia Capensis is a sarmentose rather than climbing plant, which forms long woody shoots that need support to lean on, and which must be guided and tied. If drastically pruned in late winter, it can also be maintained as a vigorous evergreen bush. The leaves, normally evergreen, in case of intense cold below 0 ° C, fall, and the plant behaves like a deciduous leaf. The flowers are raceme inflorescences gathered in apical and axillary clusters. The funnel-shaped or tubular flowers are red-orange in color, with a corolla divided into lobes: the upper one is erect while the others are patent or reflected. A long and visible pistil appears from the corolla of flowers. The fruits are long green bean-like pods that protect numerous small winged seeds inside. Bignonia capensis blooms from summer until late autumn.

Although it grows well in any type of soil, it loves loose soil, rich in organic substance, well drained and non-calcareous.
