Bush Fuchsia


Bush Fuchsia

I'm not a fan of Fuchsias generally...this is one that appears every year...has a very attractive form of growing in a waterfall type style.Fits in well between the Bamboo and Lilac.

It just fits in beautifully. It is very floriferous. My hummingbirds would love your place Meadowland.

Oh,K,it would be lovely to see them here too..my son breeds Gouldian finches .We have such pleasure watching them.

I love most Fuchsia's Julia,and this one looks to be a good gap filler between the Lilac and Bamboo.It blends in perfectly,and especially with the Euonymous ?.(.or similar ) in the front..A lovely combination all round. :o)

Thank you so much,Sandra...it has taken a few years for this border to look right.Behind are many large brambles which are hard to eradicate.

Meadowland, I looked up "Gouldian finches" and what a beautiful, colourful birds they are . I understand that they are shy and do not want to be handled???

I know what you mean,Julia,it's taken me almost 20 years to get my long border as I want it..It must be one of those 'it doesn't look right there' moments ,that many of us experience :o) Luckily,I don't have any nightmare Brambles to cope with .

They are shy,K,Owen has built 2 very large flights where they fly around...they are quite hard to breed needing a constant temperature and warmth in the winter.Well worth it though.

Sandra, I have had a couple of those borders over the years and they never seem right until another drastic decision is made.OH doesn't see it,or maybe he does and knows how much work it will involve.!!

Beautiful border, Julia. Everything looks so complimentary. Love the colours too…I’m not a big fuchsia fan either, but this looks just perfect here!
