Essential Plants 166.jpg
A well known genus of flowering shrubs. It is one of those genera that draws its own enthusiastic growers and there are some who grow little else than fuchsias.

Fortunately there is plenty of scope as there are thousands of cultivars from which to chose. A few are hardy and can be left in the open garden, but the majority are tender and must be overwintered in the warm, although they can be planted out during the summer months.

Fuchsias are either grown as shrubs, trailing plants or as standards, on long upright stems. They can be grown in a border, often as bedding plant or in containers, including hanging baskets and widow boxes.

The hanging flowers are of exquisite shapes, a bit like a ballet dancer with their arms in the air. They can be a single colour or the different layers of petals can be different colours. Apart from white the colours are mainly based on pinks, purples and reds.

They have a very long flowering season, which is one of their attractions to many gardeners. Those that are hardy enough to be left outside are usually cut to the ground in the spring and since they have to regrow, are later coming into flower.
