A lovely little addition. The flowers are smaller, but they absolutely engulf the plant. They also sit more upright than many of the larger ones which are more pendant.
Plenty of flowers open in spring, and if you keep nipping out the old blooms you will have a lovely, long show right up to frost.
These new varieties of Freesias are vigorous with good disease resistance. They are both more sun and shade tolerant, and can flower freely with just three hours sun a day.
The flowers open in abundance 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 with added general purpose fertiliser. Make sure you keep them moist while actively growing.
With a little love Fuchsias will flower from spring to autumn. You can dead head them throughout the season to keep the blooms coming.
