A Spectacular Hedge: Revisited

Every day I pass the Spectacular Hedge about which I blogged on 31 March. The fact that I couldn't find out what it was was beginning to rankle. So I did the obvious and cut a piece off and asked at a Garden Centre. The answer is Cape Honeysuckle ( Tecomaria capensis). As the name suggests it's a native of South Africa. It is, potentially, a weed in New Zealand because it very vigorous and produces a dense mass, smothering or replacing native vegetation.
