One of the hardier fuchsias, this one will survive outside in sheltered gardens throughout the year especially if tucked in with a generous layer of mulch in autumn. It is a bushy upright deciduous shrub which produces slender green-tipped white flowers that appear to drip from the stems for several months throughout summer and autumn. Providing long lasting interest it is perfect for mixed or shrub borders and will even make an attractive informal hedge.

  • Garden care: To encourage bushy 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.
