Growing Alice Hoffman Fuchsias

These hardy, dappled shade-tolerant shrubs are at their best in sunny, not too blisteringly hot sheltered sites. They prefer fertile, well drained soil.

If the winter is too harsh for them, their stems will die above ground like a herbaceous perennial, and you can chop them off before spring to make way for the regrowth.

They are ideal for growing in pots in most of the country. In colder parts of the North, it can be a problem if the pot freezes too much, potentially killing the crown; plants in the ground should be well enough insulated to avoid this. When planting in containers, plant them deeper than normal to give them extra protection.

In Your Garden Design

Its wonderfully coloured blooms could inspire a zany red and white planting scheme. It would be excellent paired with Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ and toned down with a burst of Cosmos ‘Purity’ and partnered with Dahlia Checkers. In a large container, plant with a lovely matching rose around it such as Nostalgia.
