Just a wild guess here ... it reminds me of Fuchsia.

Fuchsia (Fuchsia triphylla 'Gartenmeister Bonstedt')

Oh goodness, there are tons in the database: http://garden.org/plants/searc...

It reminds me of a Fuchsia also but the foliage doesn't look right. 100's of Individual plants were carpeting an area about 6 by 10........

Another possibility? Zauschneria (Epilobium): http://garden.org/plants/searc...

I think it may be Hummingbird Trumpet.....Epilobium canum subsp. latifolium. Dirtdorphins has pictures on the data base taken in her Utah garden. See what you think and thanks for the help.....

Well, it does look like Hummingbird Trumpet (Epilobium canum) but I have difficulty going back and forth comparing photos so I'm no help. Hopefully someone who actually grows these beauties will pop in with confirmation. @dirtdorphins

Paul, I like to google. A lady I used to know on the old site always called me the Google Queen. Green Grin! But really, my eyesight isn't what it used to be and I have difficulty going back and forth trying to compare photos; unless the photos are side by side I'm usually way off with an ID.

Hi!

It is definitely an Epilobium of some kind!

Too difficult to determine exactly which--
Looks like E. canum subsp. garrettii 'Orange Carpet' to me, which is also probably the most available/common/likely variety to find around here, too--expansive low mats of profuse bloom right now!

We bought 2 of these (at least they look exactly like your photo) at a local nursery and have each in container. The tag says "Orange Carpet" California fuchsia- botanical name on tag Zauschneria garettii. Also read somewhere the genus name was changed to Epilobium but Zauschneria is a better known name. So plantladylin and dirtdorphins, looks like you got it!

Hi Judy, Welcome! to All Things Plants!

You should add a few photos of your California Fuchsia (Epilobium canum subsp. garrettii Orange Carpet®) to the database!

Thank you Lin! Ours have not been doing too well but about the last week or so they are looking much better and blooming again (they had almost stopped) so if I can get some good pics I definitely will add them. LOVE this website, just beginning to learn my way around.

no--those flowers with the leaves and plant habit it is Epilobium--

Wish we could grow Phygelius as perennials, they are neat

I have two different Phygelius species in hanging baskets. They are magnets for the hummers, and should be perennials here, but they don't make a pretty plant in pots. ...at least here. They are not self cleaning. The seed pods hang on forever, and if you deadhead, you don't get new flowers, as they just keep growing from the same spike, and much like the Pelargoniums, the dead leaves hang on too.
The Epilobium is pretty!
