Brilliantfragrantfuchsia bottlebrush bloomsalmost all year longare your reward with this extra showy selection growing to an impressive 10’ high and 8’ wide. When it’s young it’s a bit freeform and wispy, but as it matures it looks more like a multi-trunk tree with a nice, rounded canopy. Very pretty as an ornamental “tree” in a bed or large container. Flowers most profusely in late Winter into Spring when the tips of the branches become encased in stunning, hot-pink blooms several inches long. Flowers sporadically throughout the rest of the year. Much loved by bees, butterflies, and hummers. Plant in well-draining soil for best health.
