Fuchsia have unique blooms that look like colorful popped popcorn. They come in several different colors from pinks to dark purple and even some red. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to their bright blooms. The foliage is often woody with dark green leaves.
They perform best in milder weather/climates. In areas with extremely hot summers, more shade is welcome in order to keep Fuchsia going. They do not like hot feet and when grown in a basket, the warm air can heat up the soil. So on days when it is going to be above ninety degrees think about setting the pot down in a location that may get more shade and will keep the roots cooler. Or hang the basket in spot were it will be in afternoon shade.
Hang in part shade to part sun. Plant stems will grow to 14-24″ long and will gracefully arch down.
We grow Fuchsia in our #10 Hanging Basket size category.
