          Hardy Fuchsia Varieties            

 

The hardy Fuchsia is probably seen at its best when planted in borders as individual dot subjects amongst other types of plants.  They have a height range from approx. 12" to 48" which means they can be positioned at the front, centre or back of the border for good effect.  Flowering time is from July until the first frosts.  This section also includes 'Hardy fuchsia Species' that can be seen on page 4.

For the best results, plant out at the end of May after the danger of frosts has passed.  Ideally use plants in 1ltr pots or larger but at this time of year, with a long season to establish, plants in 10cm pots can be used.  Plant the rootball 3" below the soil surface in a saucer shaped depression and backfill as the lower wood becomes harder. Keep watered if the summer should be dry.  Prune the following spring.
