Our Fuchsia collection, unique in France, includes more than 600 varieties. Fuchsias are surprising plants because of their diversity of colours, flower shapes and sizes. Give in to temptation, a fuchsia is bound to suit your garden.
Fuchsias are semi-shade perennials that flower a lot. Fuchsia flowers can be of any shape, double, single, small, large, long, in tubes, in corollas... Fuchsias flower for a very long time, starting in April if conditions permit and ending when the frosts come. They will add colour to your perennial flowerbeds, window boxes and terraces.
Many fuchsias are perennial and can withstand temperatures as low as -15°C. This ability to withstand low temperatures is linked to its ability to restart from its rootstock. Perennial fuchsias will add structure and colour to your garden.
Fuchsias are usually planted in spring, but can also be planted in autumn. Fuchsias require half-shade or shade, especially in the afternoon. Fuchsia generally grows in all types of soil, and particularly likes cool, light soil, although it does well in clay soil.
Fuchsia is a flowering plant that is easy to care for.
Fuchsia can be overwintered in two ways:
-The first is wintering in a pot, you need to prune your fuchsia by half while removing the dead branches. Once this step is done, you just have to bring your fuchsia in a frost-free and bright place. During this period, you should not water your fuchsia too much as it will go into vegetative rest.
-The second is the wintering of plants in the ground, it is very simple. All you have to do is prune your fuchsia either in the autumn or in the spring for three quarters of your plant. In the first few years, you can mulch your fuchsias to protect their stumps. This step can also be done for fuchsias that are in a cold region.
As you have surely noticed, fuchsias are surprisingly diverse plants in terms of colour, flower shape and size. Give in to temptation, a fuchsia is bound to be right for your garden.
