Fuchsia 'Genii'

hardy fuchsia

RHS award of garden merit
2 litre pot £16.99

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
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (borderline)

    The small, pendent, violet and cerise flowers of this pretty, upright fuchsia contrast beautifully with the lime-green foliage. Flowering from June to October, it makes an eye-catching specimen or container plant for a partially shady site protected from cold, drying winds.

  • Garden care: 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
