Fabulous, well branched plants with dark foliage and dark flowers. Deepest purple petals and equally deep pink sepals. A dramatic choice.
These new varieties of Freesias are robust with good disease resistance. The blooms open earlier and last longer. They have more outward facing flowers and are well branched.
The flowers open freely for a long period over the lush green leaves. Fuchsia blooms are like pretty dancers, in fancy skirts that sway in the breeze.
Fuchsias grow best in semi shade to filtered light conditions, where they thrive in both pots and gardens.
In the garden, plant Fuchsias into humus rich, moist, well drained soil and be sure to shelter the plants from drying winds and frost. In pots, use a good quality potting mix and add some fertiliser. You will need to keep them moist during their active growth.
Fuchsias main flowering is in late spring and summer. It is a good idea to remove spent flowers and add a little fertiliser once this main flush has finished, encouraging a second round of flowers in autumn.
