Can anyone tell me what this plant is please?

Uxbridge Middlesex, United Kingdom Gb

I have been gven this and I would like to know what it is and what type of soil it likes?




I have no idea! I wonder if everyone saw it actually, because there are very knowledgable people here. It certainly looks pretty. Why not start googling? Type in trumpet shaped purple flowers in google images. See what comes up. Good luck.

It looks like a Cape Fuchsia (Phygelius Capensis?). So called, I believe because the flowers look rather like Fuchsia Boliviana but it comes from South Africa rather than South America. Frost tender, likes sun and water in a well-drained soil. Hope this helps ... (Hope I'm right after writing all that!)
