This early flowering fuchsia cultivar is ideal for hanging baskets. It will quickly send out cascades of two toned pink and violet flowers contrasting well with your other hanging basket classics such as begonias, petunias and lobelias.
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.
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.
