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.

Multnomah County Oregon

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 http://www.pnwplants.wsu.edu/PlantDisplay.aspx?PlantID=477
