General Information On Fuchsias
Very good coastal and hedging plants. For hedges use plants like Fuchsia riccartonii or Fuchsia magellanica var. Mollinae (Alba). Smaller varieties provide long lasting colour in borders or containers. Best grown in moisture retentive conditions in sun or light shade. Flowers borne profusely from summer to autumn. Some mulch at the base protects the plant during the coldest spells in the winter. The black fruits that follow the flowers are not poisonous if eaten.
