Lovers of fuchsiamust bid the gorgeous blooms farewell as temperatures cool, or do they? Trygrowing hardy fuchsia plants instead! Native to southern Chile and Argentina, hardyfuchsia is a perennial alternative to the tender annualfuchsia. Read on to learn how to grow and care for hardy fuchsias.
Hardy fuchsia plants (Fuchsia magellanica) areperennial flowering shrubs that are hardy to USDA zone 6-7. They grow from fourto ten feet (1-3 m.) in height and three to six feet (1-2 m.) across. Thefoliage is green, oval, and arranged opposing each other.
The shrub blooms in spring and reliably persists through fallwith red and purple dangling blossoms. These plants have naturalized in SouthAmerica and other mild climactic regions and are so prolific they are nowconsidered an invasivespecies. Keep this in mind prior to planting and check with your localextension office to ensure it’s okay to plant in your area.
While hardy fuchsia can be grown as a perennial, this seemsto depend on soil drainage. Also, like other fuchsias, hardy fuchsia can’t takethe heat so select an area with well-draining soil with partial sun to shade.Lighten the soil up by amending it with compostor other organicmatter or plant in a raised bed.
To protect the roots from wet, cold soil when growing, planttwo to six inches (15 cm.) deeper than you would normally plant. While plantingmore deeply than normal will help to ensure the plant’s survival, keep in mindthat it will also slow their emergence in the spring.
During winter the hardy fuchsia plants will die back to soillevel with new growth appearing in the spring. Once the plants have died back,refrain from neatening up the landscape by pruning out the dead branches. Theywill help to protect the crown. Also, in the fall, add a four- to six-inch(10-15 cm.) layer of mulcharound the crown of the plants to protect them from winter temperatures.
Caring for hardy fuchsias’ feeding needs is similar to otherfuchsia hybrids; all are heavy feeders. Work a slowrelease fertilizer into the soil around the root ball at planting time.Established plants should have this same slow release food scratched into thesoil in early spring and again every four to six weeks until midsummer. Stopfeeding thereafter to allow them time to harden off before the first frostarrives.

It is said that people who love fuchsias , really love them. With three generations of fuchsia lovers in my family, I was destined to fall in love with them too.
I remember my grandmotherвЂ™s hanging baskets overflowing with fuchsia branches smothered in blousy, red and white flowers. My family sat on a deck and chatted with Grandma while she tended her beautiful baskets. Her nimble fingers quickly pinched off the faded blossoms. I sat on her deck mesmerized by the hummingbirds buzzing in to drink the nectar from the flowering baskets above me.
When I purchased my first fuchsia basket, I chose the blousy red and white flowers of Fuchsia вЂњSwingtime,вЂќ similar to the ones that my grandmother grew. Years later when I spotted a 6-foot-tall, hardy fuchsia growing in a lightly shaded woodland garden, I began a lifelong love affair with the genus.
Many fuchsias come from the cloud-infested, higher elevations in the Southern hemisphere forests. ItвЂ™s not surprising that fuchsias thrive in our cool maritime climate. Hardy ones easily fit into almost any landscape, from woodland gardens to formal ones. You can utilize them as seasonal hedges, cascading down walls, housed in containers or nestled into a mixed border. Wherever you plant them, they will bring a long season of color for the hotter days of summer well into the cooler days of fall.
During mild winters, hardy fuchsias loose their leaves with minimal stem dieback. However, about every four to five years, this area experiences a colder than normal winter that freezes the hardy fuchsias down to the ground. This isnвЂ™t a problem since they sprout again from the roots and by midsummer flower as profusely as before. Low-maintenance plants once well established, fuchsias are surprisingly drought-tolerant in our mild climate. However, for optimum growth and flowers, they prefer a moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Below are a few select fuchsias .
In the spring or early summer, choose a well-drained spot in your garden. Dig the hole twice as wide as the root ball, and then mix in a handful of complete organic fertilizer. For a small plant, dig the hole deep enough that half the plant goes under the soil. For larger plants, place the crown 6 inches deeper.
Backfill the hole halfway with soil and water it in. After backfilling the rest of the hole and watering again, mulch the fuchsia lightly with compost or composted manure. When fall arrives, spread an additional 6 inches of mulch over the plant. When spring comes around and the leaves begin to open, prune back about half of the previous yearвЂ™s growth.
If the plant dies back to the ground in winter, prune the dead stems to the ground. Fertilize your fuchsias once in spring and again in early summer and add a yearly mulch of compost or manure.
Size: 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide
A grouping of these heat-tolerant, 3-foot-tall plants offers up a visual treat whenever they are in bloom. Like Christmas ornaments, the red-reflexed sepals open to reveal pure-white corollas streaked with red veining, while rose-pink stamens dangle below. The bright colors of summer come to life when this fuchsia is paired with a deep blue, lace-capped hydrangea, which flowers at the same time. (Above left.)
Size: 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide
Lately IвЂ™ve been smitten by the orange and coral fuchsias such as this recent addition to my garden. The soft green leaves set off the flowers with long, rose-pink tubes white-tipped, pink sepals and rose-coral corollas. These plants can reach up to 9 feet tall in a California garden, but around the Puget Sound region, they grow only a few feet above ground. (Above right.)
Size: 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide
This 1986 introduction is an upright bush that grows up to 4 feet tall. вЂњRavenslawвЂќ lights up a woodland garden with red flowers dangling below luscious, deep-green leaves. The red sepals open to reveal a reddish-purple corolla that fades to match the sepal hue as the flower ages, giving it a striking red-on-red effect. (Above left.)
Size: 2 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide
Many years ago, I selected this variegated fuchsia for its delicious foliage splashed with cream, green and rose hues. Rosy-red stems carry leaves accented by red veins, which match the sepals topping the purple corolla. The horizontal-growing branches soften a rock wall but the plant looks equally handsome on flat ground. Growing in a hanging basket, the attractive foliage holds up during the heat of summer. (Above right.)
Size: 3 to 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide
This fuchsia is a prolific bloomer, covering itself with hundreds of flowers from June until first frost. Reflexed, red sepals and blue-purple corollas with red veining and red stamens are a remarkable combination. The corollas fade to violet when the flower matures. (Above left.)
Size: 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide
Wider than its height, вЂњCheckerboardвЂќ is an upright, free-flowering fuchsia. Its charming, pendulous flowers have alternating colors вЂ” red corollas, white sepals and thin, red tubes (hypanthiums). This is a good choice for growing as a standard in containers, hanging baskets or in the garden.(Above right.)
Size: 5-8 feet tall and 5-10 feet wide
Unlike most magellanicas , with bright red and purple flowers, this speciesвЂ™ corollas are soft lavender, with sepals that are almost white, with a blush of pink. Sources say Fuchsia magellanica var. molinae attains a height of 5 or 6 feet when mature. However, in my garden, this fuchsia grew 8 feet tall and almost as wide after seven years. (Above left.)
Size: 30 inches tall and 30 inches wide
I fell in love with the name вЂњClair de LuneвЂќ because it sounded so romantic. And no wonder — the name is French for moonlight. Bred in France circa 1880, вЂњClaire de LuneвЂќ has the most scrumptious orange hues with tinges of salmon in its single blossoms. This is a graceful, trailing fuchsia that is equally at home with its bronze-green leaves cascading down a wall or a container. (Above right.)
Size: 2 to 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide Introduced just after World War II, this American beauty adorns itself in richly-hued blossoms. The ample double flowers have a short tube, reflexed carmine red sepals, rose-streaked purple corollas that fade to violet as it ages and rose-pink stamens. вЂњArmy NurseвЂќ is a real trooper, growing equally well in full sun or dappled shade.
Size: 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide
вЂњAureaвЂќ is a choice cultivar for its red-veined, golden foliage suspended from red stems the golden foliage is reason enough to grow it. Growing over a wall, the upright fuchsiaвЂ™s arching habit cascades its golden skirts over dark rocks with stunning results. To keep the foliage golden, provide afternoon shade to keep the leaves from scorching. The 2-inch, single, nodding flowers have red tubes (hypanthiums) and sepals with purple corollas contrasting pleasantly against the bright foliage.

Fuchsias are loved for their pendant flowers in vivid shades of purple, pink and white.
While many are sensitive to cold weather, there are lots of hardy species and varieties that can be grown outdoors all year as garden shrubs. While in flower, they’ll be visited by bees seeking nectar and are a good food plant for elephant hawk moth caterpillars.
Their bright flowers make fuchsias quite striking plants, so planting them next to clashing colours can appear a bit brash in the border. Avoid this effect by surrounding them with similarly toned cosmos or astrantias, plus foliage plants like hostas and ferns to soften the overall effect.
When planting fuchsias, opt for a spot in dappled or partial shade with little direct afternoon sun. They aren’t fussy about the soil they’re growing in, but it does need to be well-drained.
Discover some of the best hardy fuchsias to grow in the garden.
Fuchsia ‘Alice Hoffman’ is a small, bushy variety with standout white and pink blooms, set against bronze-green foliage. A particularly showy variety, it suits being grown alone in a large pot or container.
This upright variety has bright pink sepals and cosmic purple petals. ‘Beacon’ looks beautiful planted alongside purple-leafed heucheras and pink-flowered astrantias that help to complement the colourful blooms.
As a climbing fuchsia, ‘Lady Boothby’ can be trained to cover walls, obelisks and fences to create dramatic pillars of colour. This variety has fresh green foliage and deep pink and purple blooms.
‘Rose of Castile’ is a vigorous, free-flowering cultivar with rosy, off-white sepals and purple-pink petals. Upright in habit, it’s a good choice for training as a standard or against a wall.
This old variety was bred in 1897 by French horticulturist Victor Lemoine. ‘Brutus’ has since garnered a reputation as a reliable, vigorous and particularly free-flowering variety, with intense purple and pink blooms.
Fuchsia ‘Mrs Popple’ is a popular variety bearing masses of blooms from early summer and into autumn. Given its bushy, upright growth habit it’s a good option if you’re looking to create a flowering hedge.
With pink, tapering sepals and rich purple petals, Fuchsia magellanica and its cultivars are decidedly elegant. They can reach a height of 150cm, or more in warmer climates, which is relatively large compared with most other fuchsias you might come across.
Hardy fuchsias don’t respond well to transplanting, so be sure to plant them in a spot they’re unlikely to outgrow or need moving from.

Welcome to The Northwest Fuchsia Society Website! 10 new hardies on the Hardy List in shocking pink! NEW SPECIES BOOKLET under "Fuchsia Books".
GROWING WINTER HARDY FUCHSIAS in the Pacific Northwest
Fuchsias are wonderful, herbaceous garden perennials that will bloom all summer and fall. A truly hardy fuchsia (VH) on the West Coast of the Pacific Northwest ( USDA Zone 7-9) usually needs no extra protection in the winter once established and begins blooming in May or June. It will continue blooming until frost! Other good hardies (H) may begin blooming before the end of July. If you live in a micro-climate that frosts rarely, try any fuchsia you'll have good luck with several not listed here.
Fuchsias in the ground are easy to grow when you follow some guidelines for success:
Fertilize them with well-balanced products (
If you’re wondering why this advice doesn’t sound like the advice you’ve already heard, it may be because there are basically two ways to grow fuchsias:
1.- in the ground all year, as described above, and
2.- in containers. In containers, in general, it’s shade, more frequent watering, more food and winter protection---a different treatment.
