The name "Cape Fuschia" is misleading. Other than the fact that the flower shape resembles that of a hardy Fuschia, Phygelius are completely unrelated to Fuschias. They are actually relatives of Foxgloves and Penstemons.

very pretty. will they tolerate the heat and humidity of s.e. ga? and are they blooming for you right now?

Phygelius are native to sub-tropical areas of South Africa so I imagine they would do well in Georgia...
Yes, my plant is still covered in flowers! [flower]
