Fuchsia magellanica


Bush Fuchsia

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.219.050


This is a shrubby species of Fuchsia, quite different from the types usually grown in hanging baskets. Plants form a bushy, upright clump of dark green leaves, bearing many delicate dangling bell-like flowers, crimson with a purple centre. Although fairly hardy, this may also be wintered indoors in a pot, then moved out again for summer. Plants benefit from a hard clip each spring, to keep them bushy and compact. In Zone 6 a heavy mulch in late fall will help to bring plants through the winter.
