(Lemon Spritzer Cape Fuchsia) Slender, hot pink trumpet blossoms of Lemon Spritzer Cape Fuchsia dangle from red flower spikes. They hang over variegated foliage that looks like someone sprayed it with lime, forest green and cream accents.

The Phygelius genus is commonly known as Cape Fuchsia due to its origin in South Africa and its pendulous flowers. Similar to other Phygelius, Lemon Spritzer is long-blooming, heat tolerant and drought resistant.

Lemon Spritzer looks pretty in patio planters and hanging baskets and as a tall groundcover in areas where it is perennial. It returns annually in a broad range of USDA Cold Hardiness Zones and works well as an annual elsewhere.

We thank Ann Elizabeth Detweiler of Albany, Oregon, for hybridizing this unique Cape Fuchsia. Honeybees and hummingbirds buzz straight to it.
