Fuchsia plants produce exotic-looking, two-toned flower blossoms that are sure to brighten any area they are grown in. They are perfect for hanging baskets, though they look just as nice when allowed to cascade from a large planter sitting on the ground or on a pedestal. Hummingbirds love them.
Fuchsia, pronounced FEW-sha, are also called Lady's Eardrops, for their gracefully dangling flowers. They prefer morning sun and afternoon shade along with frequent feedings with a water-soluble fertilizer during their blooming season. The heat tolerant varieties are best for southern gardeners. Potting soil should have excellent moisture retention, but be allowed to drain. We recommend 2 to 4 fuschia plants per container for maximum visual impact!
