Phygelius rectus Moonraker


<i>Phygelius</i> x <i> rectus</i> ‘Moonraker’


Cape Fuchsia

Birds simply love the lazy clusters of long, nodding, tubular flowers that cover Phygelius all summer long. Gardeners, too, will love this fast growing subshrub from South Africa, because no matter what the cultivar, the Cape Fuchsia adds a luscious, colorful look to any garden.

A member of the Snapdragon family, Phygelius grow in well drained garden soil, and are evergreen in milder climates. Handsome, glossy, deep green foliage adorns rich maroon stems, and the stunning Penstemon-like flowers range from pale yellow to vibrant red.

Soft yellow flowers, narrower than others in the series, are borne all around the stem, orbiting like pale moons. For complementary flower color, plant with Aster ‘Lutetia’.

Size: 3-1/2' high x 3-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 7.
