This charming perennial (phygelius capensis) is growing in my San Juan Capistrano garden. It is easy to grow and quite drought tolerant once established. It grows to three or four feet high and wide and can tolerate some shade but flowers best in full sun. So far it is pest and disease free and I suspect it will stay that way. You typically see it in orange, pink or yellow, but I couldn't resist this pure white one.
