Product Description

An award-winning Fuchsia that boasts an abundance of dainty, elegant blooms with a dusky aubergine, almost black-coloured corolla surrounded by delicate, glossy crimson-red sepals. The decorative leaves are a bonus being deep green with hints of purple veins and the stems also mirror this colour, turning much darker in the autumn to contrast the flower colour beautifully. Blooming from early summer to the first frosts, this compact shrub is fully hardy and makes the perfect addition to any garden, whether planted into the border or into a large pot.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Perfect for borders, pots & containers, they will provide structure and colour all summer long. These very hardy, reliable garden performers will thrive in your garden, coming back with bigger and better displays each year, and in such a range of flower colours, flower shapes and habits.

Supplied as a collection of 6 plug plants, ready for potting up and growing on before planting out.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Apply a deep bark mulch around the base of hardy fuchsias in autumn to protect the roots from winter cold.
  • Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for fuchsias:

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you canít do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but theyíll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They donít like to be left in standing water.
  • When established, plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow - remember to protect tender plants from late frosts.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
  • Remember that plants are frost tender and should be protected from frost at all times.


Aftercare Advice for fuchsias:

  • When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise your plant to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10-day period, before planting into its final positions in patio containers and sunny or semi shaded borders.
  • Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil, with shelter from the wind. In containers, use a John Innes No 3 based compost.
  • When planting in the ground, plant the base of the stem 5cm below the soil surface and provide a deep winter mulch and shelter from the wind.
  • Water fuchsia plants sufficiently to keep the compost moist but not waterlogged and do not leave plants standing in water.
  • Fuchsias prefer shade for the hottest part of the day.
  • A balanced, liquid fertiliser used in summer encourages better blooms over a long flowering period

 

Pruning Advice for hardy fuchsias:

  • When in active growth, you can pinch out tips to increase the potential number of blooms, although this will delay actual flowering - flowers usually open six to eight weeks after you finish stopping.
  • Prune stems back to a low permanent framework in spring.
