Key features

Fuchsia Fuchsita blooms relentlessly all summer long (May through October) until the first frost. They have a slightly upright habit which makes them easy to grow on the bench, rack-ship or to display at retail. Their flowers are two-toned and come in many beautiful combinations that are sure to attract attention.

Display tip

Suitable for bedding programs as well as in mixed containers or hanging baskets. Be sure display Fuchsia Fuchsita up on a bench or shelf so your customers can admire the beauty of the colorful blooms.

Consumer care requirements

Space 10 to 12 inches. When planting, use a slow-released fertilizer in the soil mix. Water daily until the plant becomes established — about two weeks. Once the plant is established, you can allow it to dry out slightly between waterings. Avoid letting the plant sit in saturated soil. This can cause the leaves to yellow. Plant after all danger of frost is gone.
