Gartenmeister Fuchsia

Fuchsia 'Gartenmeister Bonstedt'

SKU
07154
This vigorous, upright shrub tolerates heat better than other fuchsias. Dark bronze-red leaves and stems provide striking contrast to vibrant clusters of deep coral-red tubular flowers in late spring and summer. A must for the hummingbird garden! Performs well in containers. Use as an annual in cooler climates.

Watering NeedsKeep soil surface moist, but not soggy.

Provide a lightly shaded site in moist but well-drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. In containers, check often to maintain moist conditions. Shear lightly occasionally to shape and feed with a general purpose fertilizer to encourage blooms. May be used as an annual in cooler climates.
