Genus Description Fuchsia is a genus of approximately 100 species of deciduous or evergreen trees and shrubs, and a few perennials, from mountainous areas of Central and South America and New Zealand. There are more than 8,000 hybrids and cultivars, which have been developed for their attractive and distinctive flowers, usually borne more or less continuously from summer to autumn. Fuchsia magellanica is the hardiest species and has been used extensively to produce the modern hardy fuchsias. Fuchsia flowers are axillary and usually pendulous, in terminal clusters, with short to long perianth tubes, each topped by far-spreading, colorful sepals and 4 erect, broad petals forming a cup or bell. Fuchsias, especially trained forms and pot-grown plants, are usually held to a strict pruning regimen, whether pinched for shape or to force blooming. Where not hardy, fuchsias should be grown in a cool greenhouse, placing them outdoors in a protected area for the summer. They do not tolerate high summer heat, drought, and high humidity, preferring cooler, less humid conditions.
Care Tips
Cultivation Outdoors, grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full morning sun to partial afternoon shade. Fertilize monthly. Plant the base of the stem 2in below the soil surface and provide a deep winter mulch in colder areas. Shelter from cold, drying winds. Under glass, grow in soil-based potting mix or soilless potting mix, in bright filtered light with moderate humidity; ventilate well. During growth, water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer weekly, especially in soilless mixes. Keep just moist in winter. If pruning is needed cut back to low permanent framework annually as buds begin to swell in early spring. For subshrubs, and for drastic renovation, cut back all flowered stems close to the base.
Pests and Diseases Prone to spider mites, scale insects, thrips, whiteflies, fuchsia gall mite, aphids, and root-knot nematodes. Rust, gray mold, crown gall, crown and root rots, Southern blight, and Verticillium wilt can also occur.
