Anyone try WSing Phygelius (cape fuchsia) /Zauschneria ) zn 6

ponyexpress_1March 18, 2013

Hi there. I was wondering if anyone in zone 6 has ever tried WSing Phygelius or Zauschneria? I really love the cape fuchsia. I know this is upper limits for me and may even just overwinter them inside. I also planted the Zauschneria and have it indoors right now and nothing is happening. Thank you.

I wintersowed phygelius aequalis, yellow trumpet cape fuchsia, on Feb 15 but no germination yet. I'm in Zone 8.
They overwinter well for me, but I'm not sure about whether the seed will germinate at my winter temps.

Barbe, I also have no sprouts yet outside. I did, however, plant some inside just in case because I really want them. I have seedlings indoors. They are small seedlings even with 2 sets of leaves. I'm going to attempt to transplant them into MG soil in bigger pots and see what happens. I hope I don't mess it up.
