Highly recommended by Janis and Rodney Bergquist of the American Fuchsia Society, this is another completely GALL MITE RESISTANT Fuchsia bred by mite-resistant master breeder Peter Baye. A big, bushy and vigorous landscape shrub, 6' tall and 4' across, it's a low maintenance beauty and an exuberant year around bloomer in low-frost climates and Spring thru Fall where it's chillier. Particularly showy against deep green foliage, the handsome and plentiful, vividly colored carmine and deep purple 2" blooms bring a hummingbird invasion! Can be pruned as a hedge or to contain growth. Evergreen in USDA zones 9-11 (reported to be hardy to 30° F). A fantastic choice for containers, it’s also perfect for shady garden spots - some sun is okay, too - as long as the roots don’t get too dry and hot. Rich, well drained soil for top-of-the-line appearance.
