Phygelius Moonraker - Yellow Cape Fuchsia

Phygelius Moonraker is probably the best garden citizen of the Cape Fuchsia group. Phygelius Moonraker grows well, flowers dependably and doesn't run amuck. The slender yellow flowers are beautiful from late Spring through early Fall. The Yellow Cape Fuchsia seems to do its best with full sun at the coast and light shade in inland gardens. Phygelius Moonraker spreads as much as 6" per year if left unchecked and grows to 2 feet tall. Phygelius Moonraker is pretty darn hardy, capable of withstanding temperatures well into the teens. Phygelius Moonraker 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.
