Lemon Spritzer Cape Fuchsia

Phygelius x rectus 'Lemon Spritzer'

The variegated leaves of Lemon Spritzer Cape Fuchsia bring a bit of sparkle to the part-sun perennial border. Bright green-gold leaves are flecked with dark and lime green, with the occasional splash of cream. Brilliant orange-pink blossoms are a hummingbird magnet from spring through fall.

I’d had my eye on cape fuchsias for a while (because I love my hardy fuchsias so much), and I finally purchased this Lemon Spritzer after falling in love with its vibrant foliage and contrasting flowers. I’m hoping this similarly-named plant (of an entirely different genus) performs as flawlessly as my fuchsias do.
