My fucshia was a stub when I moved in and I had no clue what plant it was. This thing just keeps growing and growing in its full sun location. It is supposed to be pampered in zone 7 (new zones). But I didn't water it at all through 2 summers and it thrived and flowered after the coldest winter on record (-18C). So maybe this can be more hardy than you would think...
