Phygelius rectus Moonraker

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

Phygelius

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’.

Blooms June–September.

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

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
