Phygelius capensis

It was almost worth jarring my bad knee for this shot!

THanks. Glad you like it. I hurt my knee getting this shot sadly. Luckily the tendon is okay

Beautiful, Jams. Are they frost resistant?

They survive and thrive in our garden but it is sheltered and in a part of England that does not usually get hard winters. It may not thrive in places that get hard winters though

What the heck is that? I have never heard of it. But it is a lovely photo. I'll bet you are furious at not being able to tend your garden.

It's also known as a Cape Fuchsia jmb. It is a beautiful and vigorous plant. I wish I could do some gardening,,, I can't even weed!
