Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Baa On Jun 25, 2002, Baa wrote:

A trailing hybrid Fuchsia bred in the USA 1989.

Has large, double, pink/purple flowers with pale pink, reflexed sepals which reach to 4 inches across.

Dead head regularly to keep the flowers coming throughout the summer.

Only hardy down to 40F and dislikes temperatures above 85F and prefers light shade conditions. Bring indoors for the winter and prune back to 3-4 buds.

I find it best not to water Fuchsias over the winter until you want to start them back into growth, this will depend on how cold your Spring is, best guide I an think of is 6-8 weeks before last frost date. Don't put them out until there is no risk of frost.

When the growth has started, pinch back stems when they reach about 4 inches tall to encourage the Fuchsia to bush out. Keep well watered and fertilized throughout the growing season.

Excellent and showy plant for hanging baskets and containers.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
