'Hammer's Rose'

Tecomaria capensis Hammers Rose Tecomaria capensis Hammers Rose

It’s a BUSH! It’s a VINE! And it’s so EASY, my dog could grow it! This lovely variety introduced by the late plantsman Gary Hammer is also less aggressive than the species. Easily pruned into a 4-6’ shrub or left on its own as a rambling vine or quickie privacy screen (to 16’ x 6’), it’s loaded with chubby 6” upright clusters of 2” rosey-apricot tubular blooms Summer thru Winter. Lush, evergreen foliage! Tolerates blistering heat, drought and it’s deer resistant. Not fussy about soil, but a little compost makes everything better! Hummers!
