Hardy fuchsia with masses of pink flowers in summer

This hardy fuchsia is medium sized and bursts into a plethora of tantalising pink flowers between June and October.

Where?

Perfect for your patio or your garden, Garden news is happiest in partial shade or full sunlight.

How?

Easy to maintain, a hardy variety of Fuchsia that should survive in most conditions, plant in moist soils and water regularly until established.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
