Buy Fuchsia 'Lady Thumb' hardy fuchsia: full of summer flowers

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)

    This is a little gem. It forms a neat and bushy mound that is laden with tutu-like pink and white flowers from June to October. Therefore, if you want something that will put on a good show for months on end, then this is perfect. You can use it in pots to jazz up the patio, or add lashings of colour to a mixed border - and as it's one of the hardier varieties, it can be left outside in milder areas.

  • 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. Protect the roots with a generous layer of mulch in autumn, or move potted plants to a sheltered position in the garden during the worst of the winter weather.

Lovely small fushsia with an abundance of flowers.


I've planted this in my small rockery and it soon produced a profusion of pretty pink and white flowers. Being a plant that flowers late summer and autumn, it helps keep the colour in my garden late into the year.
