Phygelius New Sensation

Dwarf Cape Fuchsia

USDA Zone: 8-9

Plant number: 1.419.090

(='Blaphy') Cape Fuchsia are native to South Africa, but surprisingly hardy perennials. Plants make a bushy mound of green foliage, bearing showy clusters of fuchsia-like firecracker flowers beginning in mid-summer and continuing into the fall. This terrific compact selection features glowing magenta-pink blooms. These adapt well to containers, and in cold winter areas may be wintered indoors. Plants form a woody base and should be pruned back to 6 inches or so each spring. Great for cutting. USPP#13464: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
