has a long blooming season. The unusual flowers are often held at odd angles,
sometimes pointed back towards the main stem. The leaves are green with rounded
small teeth. Cape Fuchsia comes from South Africa. It is in the snapdragon family
(Scrophulariaceae). The stems of Phygelius capensis can run a bit. The plants get to 4' x 4' and slowly
grow wider if water is available. I cut Phygelius capensis back hard in the winter as the stems
die back anyway and it is easier to get at them all at once. There is some foliage
damage in the mid 20°s F.
