Growing 'Dollar Princess' Fuchsias

These hardy, quite shade-tolerant shrubs are best in sunny, sheltered sites and suit any fertile, well-drained soil. This is a relatively cold-hardy fuchsia but if the winter is too much for it, its stems will die above ground like a herbaceous perennial. You can chop these off before spring to make way for the regrowth.

They are ideal for growing in pots in most of the country. In colder areas, it can be a problem if the pot is frozen for too long, potentially killing the crown; plants in the ground should be well enough insulated to avoid this.

In Your Garden Design

What a pretty princess this one is, with deep pink sepals that are recurved, all the more to show off the double purple skirts. Use at the front of a border of bedding plants, or on its own in pots and hanging baskets. It is also brilliant as a stand alone standard. You could go all "Bridgerton" and create ornate pyramids of them in your garden, pairing with plump roses such as Timeless Purple, archways of wisteria, delicate sprays of gypsophilia and sumptuous beds of heuchera coral bells or Forever Purple. Alternatively, create a more contemporary look by interspersing with squared off dwarf box hedging and majestic alliums. Fuchias also lend themselves magnificently to cottage garden schemes.

Did You Know?

Fuchsias were the height of fashion during the Victorian era, when it was popular for head gardeners to grow large pillars, pyramids and standards of them to line the driveways of big country houses. James Lye, of Clyffe Hall, Market Lavington in Wiltshire, was the most famous of them, exhibiting in shows and growing pillars of fuchsias 8ft-10ft high. By 1866 he was heralded as the Champion Fuchsia Grower of the West of England.

The trend died out during the World Wars, when most greenhouses and cold frames were given over to grow vegetables.
