Hardy A to J

Some hardy fuchsias can survive most winters throughout the UK, if properly planted in the ground. Check the hardiness rating via the Attributes tab to see how hardy each fuchsia is. There is a surprising choice of colour and form available nowadays, so finding a hardy fuchsia, or several, for your garden should not be too difficult. Colours range from Annabel (white), through Azure Sky & Star Wars (blue) to Leverkusen (dark red), to Lady Boothby (dark aubergine), with a range colours in between.
