I bought one of these last year it was called Red Alert, it grew into a nice sized plant almost like a bush in a pot on our patio. The hummingbirds just loved it, so this year we bought two of them just as more enticement for the hummingbirds. We always have hummers in our flower garden, but it is fun seeing them right on the patio.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

I agree. Phygelius is a really nice plant and it's a hummingbird magnet. It's also much easier to keep alive than fuchsias are.
