Not many gardeners know phygelius, and they deserve to be more widely grown because they are ideal for many of our gardens. The plants are tall, elegant, have abundant flowers which pollinators love, and thrive in a mild coastal climate year round. In colder gardens, give them a generous warm mulch blanket to sleep through winter, and they'll bounce back in spring.
