Is this a native? Or something you found at the nursery? When you say Northern California redwoods, is that west or east? Really far north or Monterey north?

Sorry for all the questions... Smiling

Could be. They're a couple that have pale yellow flowers. See P. aequalis or P x rectus

i think Phygelius might very well be what it is
i purchase 3 different colors and the white was the only survivor
might be this one http://plantlust.com/plants/17...
BTW: those flowers are probably 8 ft high

Thanks for the info Dick. I was thinking Cape Fuchsia but to be honest, I have never seen a white one. Yes, 8 ft tall seems right. Smiling

Sorry I seemed nosy - I thought maybe it was a native.

I'm glad others figured it out. Have a nice evening!

I had a red one when we lived in California. It was impossible to keep in one place. It had suckers running in all directions. Mine was only about 3 feet tall but there was one down the street that was more than 6 feet. But mine (and the neighbors) were red, not white.
