Fuchsia 'Hardy Collection' A (Hardy)

Fuchsia 'Army Nurse', 'Delta's Sarah' & 'Shrimp Cocktail'

Hardy Shrub

 Customer Rating

This collection of outstanding hardy fuchsias makes a colourful addition to containers and borders. Compact and bushy, they will flower non-stop from early summer to autumn, growing in stature with the passing years. Height and spread: 90cm (36”).

  • Collection comprises:
  • Fuchsia 'Shrimp Cocktail' - A fusion of marbled hot pink petals with a candy blush; each bloom totally unique and almost luminous against the dark foliage.
  • Fuchsia 'Army Nurse' - Royal purple, single blooms are carried on the compact stems of this hardy bush variety.
  • Fuchsia 'Delta's Sarah' – A beautiful bush variety that produces a succession of supremely weather resistant, unusual coloured blue flowers, up 6cm (2½ “) in diameter.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Pot up hardy fuchsias using well drained compost such as John Innes No.3, and grow on in warm, frost-free conditions. Pinch out the growing tips while fuchsia plants are still small to promote bushier growth and more flowers. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10 day period, before planting them in their final positions in patio containers and sunny or semi shaded borders.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Apply a deep bark mulch around the base of hardy fuchsias in autumn to protect the roots from winter cold. Prune stems back to a low permanent framework in spring.

  1. Hardy collection - fuschia

    By Mike Richardson 30-06-2014

    The plugs arrived in June (sooner than expected), with instructions, and were planted indoors - 5 in one trough, 4 in another. Two have lost the will to live (my fault as I've just started the hobby), but the others are now outside, still in troughs, 10" tall, and one has started flowering. I've ordered other items and no issues so far.

  2. Fuchsia 'Hardy Collection' 3

    By anette Ungeheuer 14-09-2012

    The plugs were all well rooted and looked fresh. My plants grew nicely, however the Delta's Sarah is not blue at all and the shrimps cocktail not as advertised. I still give a satisfying rating because I got a wonderful deep purple, velvety plant which I like very much.

  3. Hardy Collection - Fuchsia

    By Natasha Hannah-Lyons 25-04-2012

    The plugs arrived in great condition with a detailed aftercare booklet. I planted them on but kept them indoors thanks to the greatest british weather but they are doing well and growing into fantastically healthy plants and i cannot wait to plant them out into the garden.

  4. Fuchsia 'Hardy Collection' 3

    By Rita Fox 07-08-2011

    These 9 jumbo plugs (3 of each variety) arrived in superb condition in May/June and since planting in large pots they have grown to magnificent bushy plants that look stunning all around my patio and by my front door. I am very pleased and as they are hardy I am hoping to keep them for a number of years. Very good value.
