This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


The first variegated Phygelius on the market! Lemon yellow leaves are dotted an splashed with bits of lime and pine green. Sometimes they are accented with a dollop of cream. This plant is so pretty, it doesn't need to flower, but when it does, it really all comes together! Coral orange trumpets call out to hummingbirds and bees. The excellent vigor of this plant will make it a super container, garden and border plant.

Notes From “Phygelius Possibilities “by Matt Moyer and Rick Schoellhorn U. of Florida 2004: “If growth regulation is needed, we have found that a drench of paclobutrazol is effective for height control. If the plant flowers out in an early flush and begins to look rough, simply shear it back, and it returns to flower in 3-5 weeks, depending on environmental conditions.”
