Absolute love this variety for shade container - it produces small flowers later in the season but makes a lot of interest color foliages which brighten up the shade!

The bright colours of the foliage, not just yellow, make this fuchsia a welcome addition to a dark corner. Even the flowers are enjoyable. Not really a hanging basket plant. Easy to propagate from cuttings.

Grown mainly for the great foliage colors red / yellow / chartreuse. Has a sprawling habit and adds "light" to shady parts of the garden.
