This striking hardy Fuchsia produces outstanding scarlet and violet-purple flowers that hang from arching stems with dark green foliage that has a bronze gloss. A winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit, it has an upright habit and makes a fantastic hedging plant in frost-free areas. A great variety for attracting butterflies and bees to the garden. Grows to a height of between 75-100cm. Performs best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil in partial shade. UK-grown 3cm jumbo plug plants supplied.

Planting

Plant on arrival with enough room for roots to establish.

Soil Type

Humus rich, moist soil

Pruning

Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering.

Unpack immediately upon arrival and give them a little water if needed. If potting up into containers, use a balanced compost (that is not too peaty) as it is inclined to produce a hard crust if allowed to dry. We recommend a John Innes Compost No 2.
If you wish to over-winter your plants, lift them after flowering and store in pots/tray in a frost free place such as a greenhouse, frame or shed (and keep soil dry around the roots).
