With their eye-catching colors of red and purple, fuchsia are a delightful addition to my Rhode Island gardens. I generally have 3 or 4 in various sections of the yard. Since my yard is mostly shade to partial shade, fuchsia tend to be "tender perennials" and I bring them inside from Thanksgiving to mid May. Three of the four have survived four years using this method. They continue to bloom profusely each summer and display lovely foliage during winter months inside.
