Santa Cruz half-hardy Fuchsia forms a lovely shrub, about 3 feet tall and maybe 4 feet wide. It is a reliable bloomer, and tolerates some cold, to maybe 20 F, if it is protected with either a blanket or mulch during severe cold and/or snow.

It also thrives in full sun (10 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. DST), as long as it is watered once a week. If the soil is good, it will not need additonal fertilizer.
