Buy Fuchsia 'Delta's Sara' hardy fuchsia ( syn. Deltas Sarah ): A hardy and prolificly-flowering

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • 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 fade to maroon-purple and 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.

  • Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten

Not borderline hardy, Not hardy at all


So sad to lose this plant in winter 2020 bought another in the summer of 2021. Also died. Is a beautiful specimen but it didn't survive a mild Essex winter




Great quality, healthy plant


A really good, reliable producer with excellent quality plants and customer service. What more could you want? Might be other cheaper offers but not as reliable with the quality. A good range too with excellent descriptions and advice on plant care online which has been really helpful.




Gorgeous and long flowering


Lovely fuchsia, long flowering and hardy.




A Great Hardy Fuchsia


I used to have this fuchsia years ago and lost it in a garden make over. The flowers are more like a tender fuchsia - absolutely beautiful, yet hardy. Great packaging and safe delivery.


West Midlands


It has fantastic growth and is floriferous


This fuchsia is divine. It is robust, healthy, put on excellent growth. Produced a beautiful spread of flowers which were long lasting and an uncommon colour.




Very good


Bought several of these, they have grown really vigorously and flowered all the way from June to November, the best thing in the garden!




Pretty flower


Took a while to establish but is now flourishing,very pretty with a spreading habit.


East anglia


Good plants


Bought for the really blue flowers which rapidly changed to purple so disappointed as were the friends I treated with a plant.






Flowers profusely even in the absence of direct sunlight. Love it. Unusual colours and very striking.




Most beautiful fuchsia


Most beautiful fuchsia in my opinion. Elegant colour combination. Had it in a pot for several years, doing OK, a couple of years ago, I planted it in a new bed, and topped up with regular fertiliser. Wow, it tripled in size since and gives such a great display. Flowers last well into October when frost arrives. A delightful plant that visitors commented on regularly.

I've bought this Fuchsia plant last week and has arrived in total dormancy. Please let me know if I can put the pot in the garden now (10th of March) and if not, when is the right time to put it out. Thank you.


Thank you for your question. The fuchsia is borderline hardy so will be best kept in a cool, frost-free location until early May (possibly earlier in London). This is to reduce the chance of the new foliage being frost nipped or burned by cold temperatures. You could plant outside now and have a horticultural fleece type product to hand just in case sudden or prolonged cold temperatures are forecast. I hope this helps.


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 there I would use a pot approx 40-50cm diameter.

Would this Fuchsia be suitable for hanging baskets?


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


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

Ruth Boswell

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