This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    Producing its deep purple and warm red flowers over a really long time, this fuchsia will form a key role in the summer garden. If left to grow naturally, it will form an open shrub with splaying stems, but if its red-stained stems are tied onto a network of wires laid flat against a wall or offered some other form of support, this borderline-hardy fuchsia can be trained to scramble like a climber.

  • Garden care: To encourage growth, pinch out the growing tips of young plants after the sixth or seventh pair of leaves. During the growing season water regularly, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Cut back to the permanent framework in early spring.
