Species & Unusual Hybrids

Species fuchsias are interesting & varied, some creep along the ground, others shoot for the stars. They can be epiphytic or have tuberous roots, some are challenging, all are great fun to grow. Try F.procumbens for gound cover, one plant can cover 2m in a season, yet it's not invasive & is easily controlled. Species hybrids like Shuna Lindsay, Tarra Valley or Lenonhart von Fuchs provide yet another level of interest.
