I'm going to try bringing it through winter. I think it'll do better than other fuschias, it can stand dry and heat.

Your Bidens have produced far more flower than mine this year.
It is the first year I have grown them, bought as plug plants back in the spring. I have used them in wall planters at the back of the house, so they face NW or NE; they probably need more sunshine than they have had.
Do you over-winter these too ?

This is my first time with Bidens as well, Xela. My west one died in the late spring frost and this east one flourished. This east box treats anything in it well. I am only attempting the fuschia for overwinter. I can't manage the window box inside and I'm expecting most of the box is bidens
