If you want to bring some unusual texture and colour into your space, then Phygelius is a plant that should be near the top of the list. This semi-evergreen shrub produces oval leaves that taper to a triangular point. Each stem produces large clusters of long, pendulum dusty red flowers that form a colourful sheath around the pollen-filled stamen. The flowers come in an array of vibrant colours that bring life and colour to your space. Looks-wise, this plant is similar to fuchsia, but it is hardier. It looks fantastic as part of a sunny herbaceous border or in a large container.

Where to plant Phygelius plants
A plant is well-draining soil that receives full sun throughout the day. Ensure that the space is sheltered from cold, harsh winds.

How to grow Phygelius plants
Water well to keep the soil moist but not wet, and apply a weak liquid fertilizer once a month during the flowering period. Cut back to base in late spring and deadhead any spent flowers as soon as you see them. In the winter, apply a thick covering of mulch and fleece to the base of the plant to help protect it from harsh frosts.
