Phygelius capensis, commonly known as Cape fuchsia has pink or yellow flowers. The genus Phygelius is not related to the Fuchsias although some of the species are given that as a common name. Garden cultivars, some as hybrids between the two South African species shown in this album, have mainly originated in England. This plant is fast-growing, thrives on water and is propagated from cuttings. It tends to clump, growing multiple stems and responds well to cutting back during the dormant winter season (Joffe, 2001).
