  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy ( may need winter protection)

    A newly introduced, hardy Fuchsia, that produces large, white and violet-blue flowers, which seem to drip from the branches for a long period throughout summer and autumn. Wonderful for adding lashings of colour to a mixed border, it will also flourish in a generously-sized pot and can be under-planted with seasonal bedding.

  • Garden care: To encourage growth, pinch out the growing tips of young plants after the sixth or seventh pair of leaves. During the growing season water regularly, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Cut back to the permanent framework in early spring.

        Wanted a different colour fuchsia to the pinks and reds already in my garden. This is perfect, lovely large purple and white flowers. The plants from Crocus arrive healthy and well wrapped. I will be using them again.

          A lovely purple and white fuchsia that's a change from the usual pink varieties. Needs to be displayed fairly high to take full advantage of the flowers.

          • Q:

            What constitutes a 'generously sized pot' for this plant (which I ordered a week or so ago and which was delivered on time and in good condition, thank you). Although it says that it can be underplanted by seasonal bedding that isn't something I intend to do so, presumably, that could influence the container size?
            Many thanks

              Hello,

              This Fuchsia has a more upright habit, so is better suited to pots or the border than a hanging basket.

            Plant for a difficult North East corner

            Dear Helen Please can you help me? I have a space next to my front door that is crying out for a pretty plant. It measures about a metre square. However I am struggling to find something that will grow. It is North East facing and pretty much permanently in the shade. The soil is very moist due to being right on top of the soakaway from the guttering. It is good soil though. I would like a climber of some sort, but not one that will get out of control too quickly. Can you help me please? Regards Kathryn

              Hello Kathryn, I'm afraid the conditions you describe are far from ideal, so you will struggle to get something to grow - especially something that is not too tough and vigorous. I would consider using the climbing Hydrangea as although it will eventually get quite big it is quite slow getting started. Alternatively opt for a flowering shrub like a hardier Fuchsia. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

            Fuchsia pruning

            Hello, My 'Pink Pearl' Fuchsia bush needs to be cut back- it's very overgrown and untidy, but I have no idea when I should do this. Can you help? Irene

            • A:

              Hello Irene, In really cold areas, this should be trimmed now by cutting all the stems back by a third, but in milder areas, you should wait until the new growth is emerging in spring. It may tolerate a harder prune in spring, however it can be risky and you may lose it. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

            Will Fuchsias attract the bees?

            I am keen to plant bee attracting flowers though have very limited bed space. I have one small bed with Fuschias. Are these attractive to bees? I would appreciate your advice. Sincerely, Ruth

              Hello Ruth, Honeybees love most of the Fuchsias, so they make an excellent choice for a shadier bed.
