Bring an exotic feel to your patio or late summer colour to your borders with Phygelius 'Funfare Orange', a showy and hardworking semi-evergreen shrub. From June right through to September, upright stems bear nodding trumpet-shaped blooms in a beautiful shade of pinkish orange with yellow throats. Hailing from South Africa, this Cape Fuchsia enjoys a sheltered position, but is generally hardy in mild parts of the UK and can be grown as a semi-evergreen shrub if given adequate winter protection. The perfect specimen plant for a sunny spot! Height and spread: 70cm (28in).

Grow Cape Fuchsias in patio containers or borders, in any moist, well drained soil. Position in a sunny or semi shaded site which is protected from cold winds over winter. Container-grown plants can be moved to a frost free position over winter. Border-grown Phygelius will benefit from winter protection such as an autumn mulch of chipped bark or leaf mould.
Feed and water regularly until plants are fully established. Cut back old stems at the base of the plant in spring to promote the development of new growth. In very mild areas where the stems are not damaged by cold winters, Phygelius may be grown as a semi-evergreen shrub, requiring only light pruning of the stems in spring to improve the shape of the plant.
