Phygelius Pink Sensation - Pink Cape Fuchsia

Phygelius Pink Sensation has been sturdy though not robustly spectacular in its growth habits, as are many of the other Cape Fuchsias. Phygelius Pink Sensation will tolerate full sun near the coast but seems to prefer a little shade. The Cape Fuchsias do best on a lean water diet. After 3 years our Phygelius Pink Sensation is a couple of feet across and rather prone to laying on the ground. Plants are hardy into the mid 20°'s. The striking flowers are plenty of reward to put up with the Pink Cape Fuchsia's limitations. Phygelius Pink Sensation 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.
