Mexican Honeysuckle (Justicia spicigera)

DESCRIPTION

Mexican Honeysuckle grows about knee high and spreads up to 5’ across. Light green foliage with lots of orange bloom clusters on a fast growing plant. Will tolerate full sun, but performs the best with morning sun or under the canopy of filtering desert trees like Mesquites or Palo Verdes.

Plant them in loose draining soil, lots of sand is good. Mexican Honeysuckle prefer deep water but make sure to let them dry a bit between watering. Heavy wet soils make them turn yellow. Trim in late winter for the best appearance throughout the blooming season.
