Gardeners' Notes:

Positive JeffAW On Mar 21, 2014, JeffAW from Mcminnville, OR wrote:

Fuchsias come in many forms and this is my favorite. The plant can easily be 5' tall during its second year and will continue to bloom and attract hummingbirds well into fall. And I would take issue with the hardiness ratings. Although subfreezing weather may kill some or all of the the above-ground vegetation, the roots will survive. During December 2013 we had a week-long cold snap with daytime temperatures staying below 30 and several nights in the single digits. In a shaded part of my back yard I had a small plastic tub with rooted cuttings. The tub was frozen solid for several days but with the first warm weather of spring new shoots appeared.
