PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Phygelius Ex. rectus 'Salmon Leap'|
|Cape fuchsia 'Salmon Leap'|
|Phygelius 'Salmon Leap' is a suckering plant with dark green leaves and attractive panicles of tubular, orange-red flowers in summer.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow under glass in spring or summer, on the surface of good quality, moist compost, covering with a sprinkling of sieved compost or fine vermiculite. Maintain a temperature of 70-75F (21-24C). Germination usually occurs in 14 days, but can be erratic. Transplant outdoors after all danger of frost is past, growing on in individual pots, planting out when large enough. Plants can reach a height of around 2m but can be cut back to suit. Suckers can be removed and discarded or planted elsewhere if desired.|
