Double blooms of soft pink and out there cerise purple, a stunning combination. Fuchsia ‘Bella Rosella’ boasts quite large blooms, growing up to 10cm.
A top choice for hanging baskets, this trailing fuchsia has plenty of flower power. Though in saying that it is quite strong and could be grown as a standard with minimum support.
Fuchsia blooms are like pretty dancers, in fancy skirts and sway in the breeze. The flowers open freely for a long period over the lush green leaves.
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. Make sure you keep them moist while actively growing.
Fuchsias flower in Summer, it is a good idea to remove spent flowers and add a little fertiliser once the main flush has finished to encourage a second round of flowers in autumn.
