Mystery plant #1

Asked June 16, 2016, 10:30 PM EDT

I bought this plant at a clearance sale in a local nursery, but it didn't have a label. Can you please help me identify it? It is currently in a pot, and about 1,5' tall. Since I don't know what it is, I don't know what growing conditions it needs and where in my garden to plant it.

Your mystery plant is Phygelius, the cape fuchsia. It is a hardy perennial that does very well here in the northwest. Various named hybrids ae available in garden centers, their flowers ranging from red, through orange, to yellow and cream. See
