"Yellow Cape Fuchsia" 10 seeds җ җ

The Cape Fuchsia is native to South Africa, but surprisingly quite a hardy perennial. Plants make a bushy, upright mound of green foliage, bearing showy clusters of fuchsia-like flowers beginning in mid-summer and continuing into the autumn. Aequalis has bright yellow blooms that attract hummingbirds in its native habitat. These adapt well to containers, and in cold winter areas may be wintered indoors. Plants form a woody base and should be pruned back to 6 inches or so each spring. We managed to grow these quite happily against a south facing wall in Oxfordshire for many years.
