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: average
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Flower colour: red and white
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    One of the hardier varieties, this compact bush fuchsia is ideal for adding many months of colour to mixed borders or patios - but it could also be used to create a low, informal hedge or screen. Its pendent, bell-shaped flowers, which are an eye-catching mix of bright-red and white, form along the length of the leafy stems, putting on a display that will usually last throughout the summer and well into autumn.

  • Garden care: For the best results, protect from cold, drying winds. To produce bushy, well-branched plants 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.
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant
