  • Flowers attract bees

  • Plant for full sun

An unusual, hardy/half hardy fuchsia which produces a mass of red stems bearing small, blue-grey leaves which have a silvery sheen. Tiny, semi-double, tubular, cerise pink flowers appear in late spring and summer. Foliage becomes tinged with red in sun  

Prefers a moist but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. In our experience only hardy in the most sheltered position so protect over winter or take indoors

Height: 12 - 24 inches / 30 - 60cm

Spread: 12 - 18 inches / 30 - 45cm

Lynne’s notes:

We’ve grown this variety for two seasons. We got our plants through their first winter but sadly lost all our stock following the extremes of weather we experienced 2017/18. We’ve now updated the description to hardy/half-hardy so you can decide what precautions you need to take depending on your specific conditions.
