There is no evidence of toxicity in the Cape Fuchsia, so offering the plant in moderation to your tortoise will do no harm.
Not to be confused with the garden and wild Fuchsia (Fuchsia spp.) which is a completely different plant from a separate botanical family.
The most common species of this plant has pink flowers, but Phygelius aequelis has yellow flowers.
