Cape Fushsia

Phygelius capensis 'Moon Raker'

Phygelius ‘Moonraker’ is our favorite variety of cape fuchsias. Tubular soft yellow pendulous flowers bloom from late spring through early fall. Moonraker is a fine addition to your butterfly garden, being a larval food source for the common buckeye butterfly and the variable checkerspot. Looks beautiful with dark burgundy-leaved and silver-leaved plants.
