DebRon's Black Cherry Fuchsia

Fuchsia hybrida 'DebRon's Black Cherry'

A beauty in the garden from late spring until frost! Pendulous flowers with striking maroon sepals and dark purple-black petals contrast beautifully with glossy green foliage on a strong and upright form. Purple-black berries add prolonged interest. Irresistible to hummingbirds and a great addition to background borders or patio containers.
