Phygelius African Queen - African Queen Cape Fuchsia

Phygelius x rectus African Queen has been sturdy as well as floriferous. Phygelius African Queen will tolerate full sun near the coast but seems to prefer a little shade for inland gardens. The Cape Fuchsias do best on a leaner water diet. Phygelius African Queen grows to 3 feet high, gradually spreading by underground runners. Cape Fuchsia plants are hardy into the mid 20°'s. The striking salmon flower with yellow throats are plenty of reward, the hummingbirds think so. Phygelius African Queen is a potential larval food source for the Common Buckeye Butterfly and the Variable Checkerspot and could be a nice addition to your butterfly garden.
