I've grown Fuchsia 'Angels Earrings Cascading' for several seasons in Delaware and it does indeed survive and bloom in our summer heat. It also tolerates some afternoon sun. you just have to remember to water it! I should also note that it is a vigorous plant - it grows nice and lush with just a little fertilizer.

I have not attempted wintering in the ground. I have mine in a hanging pot and I bring it into my greenhouse shed during the winter, which gets down to just above freezing in winter.

So I would highly recommend this plant if you live in eastern North America and want a hanging fuchsia that can handle summer heat.
