Fuchsia Beacon Red-Blue
- Hardy bush variety
- Upright habit – ideal for containers and borders
- Stunning 2 tone flowers
- Supplied as a well rooted plug plant
This hardy, bush fuchsia has backward facing pink coloured outer petals that turn to a rich purple on the inner petals. A good tough upright fuchsia, which is ideal for containers and borders.
Fuchsias grow well in a wide range of conditions, including in the damp, and are one of the few summer bedding flowers that tolerate shade.
Plant in a sheltered position to help survival over winter – also a mulch and fleece will help if it gets very cold.

Delivery within 7-10 working days
Pot up your plug plant into a 9cm pot and grow under cover until it has fully rooted through when it will be ready for planting out in final position.
Plant out in their final position after last frosts in spring. For hanging baskets use a good quality potting compost (peat free is ideal). For best results feed regularly 4 weeks after planting.
Fuchsias prefer damp conditions- so do not allow to dry out- and are happy in most aspects from full sun to partial shade.
Flowers til the first frosts; final height and spread: 0.25-0.5m. Can be pruned lightly during the growing season to maintain shape and vigour.
