Description
Cape Fuchsia are South African natives that love a sunny, sheltered spot on the patio. In return, these exotic-looking shrubs produce colourful tubular flowers that dangle loosely around central upright stems. This floral jamboree continues right through the summer and often into the autumn, returning each year with ever-increasing beauty. Phygelius 'Colorburst Collection’ are semi-evergreen, but will appreciate a position that is well-protected from severe winter weather. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

How to Grow
Pot up plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until large enought to be transplanted into their final positions. Gradually acclimatise Cape Fuchsias to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before plamting out in patio containers or borders, in any moist, well drained soil. Position in a sunny or semi shaded site which is protected from cold winds over winter.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until plants are fully established. Phygelius plants grown in the border will benefit from winter protection such as an autumn mulch of chipped bark or leaf mould. Container-grown plants can be moved to a frost free position over winter. Cut back old stems at the base of the plant in spring to promote the development of new growth. In very mild areas where the stems are not damaged by cold winters, Phygelius may be grown as a semi-evergreen shrub, requiring only light pruning of the stems in spring to improve the shape of the plant.
