Phygelius capensis

Phygelius capensis Magenta Phygelius capensis Magenta

I’ve never been thrilled with “Cape Fuchsias” even though they’re so easy and goof-proof. The flower colors were just too meh for me – that is, until we started growing this vivid magenta form. A refreshingly bright and shiny attention grabber for dry gardens! To 2’-3’ x 2’-3’, those richly colored blooms are held nicely on dark ruby stems above evergreen foliage Summer to Winter. Popular with hummingbirds! Best show in well-drained soil with compost added and some Summer water. Drought tolerant along the coast. Cut back to 6” in Winter. South African Native. Deer resistant!
