Fuchsia (Tender)

Fuchsia '(Unknown variety)' A huge subject, fuchsia are of three types, hardy, half hardy and frost tender. Hardy types tend to be the larger bush or hedging type, with simple single flowers, which as the name suggests will over winter well. Half hardy tend to be smaller bush or trailing specimen plants with more complicated double flowers. Frost tender plants are the more specialised and elaborately flowered specimens like the Thalia cultivar. Fuchsias are grown for their very attractive, usually pendent flowers that are borne continuously from summer to autumn.
