Fuchsia 'Genii' (Hardy) (Large Plant)

Hardy Shrub

Fuchsia 'Genii' is an extra special fuchsia with not only colourful flowers, as the foliage is also rather striking. The flowers have inky blue petals backed by magenta tepals, and these blooms are set against golden, glowing foliage.

Fuchsia 'Genii' is a brilliant, easy to grow shrub for borders or large patio containers. Plants are fully hardy and will last for many years. Fuchsias will grow happily in sun or part shade; in fact they are most at home in a dappled shade position, so are excellent for difficult corners of the patio.

Fuchsias will flower from the end of June to September, and are easy maintenance; just a little deadheading every few days will encourage plenty more blooms. Fuchsia genii has an RHS Award of Garden Merit too. Height and spread: 90cm (36").

Plant hardy fuchsias into light, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. When growing in containers, use a quality, well drained compost such as John Innes No.3. Pinch out the growing tips of your fuchsia plants once, to promote bushier growth and more flowers.
Feed and water plants regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Apply a deep mulch of bark around the base of hardy fuchsias in autumn to protect the roots from winter cold. Take care not to mound mulch up against the main stem. Prune stems back to a low permanent framework in spring.

  2. Plants practically dead

    By andrew greig 07-05-2015

    I received two of these plants recently in a very poor condition. One has subsequently withered away completely. Very disappointed.
