Hardy K to Z

Our favourite, or at least the fuchsia that got Nick into fuchsias in the first instance, Other Fellow, is in here and we recommend it as one of the easiest to keep looking pristine, due to it's self deadheading behaviour. Requires a little care when watering when kept in a container, but not having to dead head makes it worth it. From the simple elegance of Other Fellow to the wild flamboyance of Phyrne, the shapes and growth habits are widely varied, making the hardy fuchsia suitable for nearly all situations in the garden.
