Phygelius 'Moonraker' is a South African fuchsia-like sub-shrub with soft creamy yellow, slightly-downward-curved tubular flowers that will perform from June to October with only sun and water to spur it on. Cut back hard in the spring and pinch out occasionally to get good bushy form. Otherwise, avoid pruning to encourage flowers earlier in the season and grow it as a standard (using a stake).
