Fuchsia: Fuchsia hybrid
Fuchsia's dangling blooms are admired and loved by gardeners and hummingbirds. The dangling blooms and buds bring grace, color and a touch of old-fashioned charm to their surroundings. Suited for baskets, beds or containers. Flowers in shades of pink, purple, red, white, orange, and bicolor.
Some of our favorite fuchsia varieties are best suited for hanging baskets because of their trailing habits. Fuchsia 'Marinka" has showy red and pink flowers that tolerate heat. Fuchsia 'Voodoo' is a great bloomer with large double, red and violet flowers and it tolerates the heat too. Fuchsia 'Harry Gray' is a trailer with double white flowers with a soft pink blush. It cascades down two feet and grows two feet wide.
Fuchsia 'Gartenmeister Bonstedt' is an upright variety. It has beautiful orange-red flowers and dark green-purple leaves. It is also heat tolerant. 'Gartenmeister' grows three feet tall and two feet wide. We often use it for height in our shade container gardens.
