Fuchsia 'Hawkshead'


Fuchsia 'Hawkshead' (Fuchsia magellanica (Hardy fuchsia))

This fuchsia was in a pot wirh annuals for the summer. I planted it in the border when I re-did the pot for the winter, and it has thrived there. I shall leave it outside as it is a hardy plant.

It can grow very tall. Mine in the other garden got to about 6 ft. I had to keep cuttung it back all the time. I haven't got it here because it gets too big for this garden. It will look great in your's spritzhenry.

It would be lovely if it does, Hywel! Six feet? - wonderful!

What a lovely fuschia Spitz. I wish I could leave the fushia in the ground like that. They have to come inside here.

Most do, Gilli, but there are a few that can stay out, though the top growth may die back, and new shoots appear in the spring. I have 'Mrs Popple' which is very reliable like that. 'Hawkshead' should be the same, I hope!

BTW, 'Mrs Popple' is still in full bloom! Tossing about in the wind, but OK.

I have one outside in the ground still very much in flower , I havent a clue as to what its called , It stays tucked in the corner of the house wall year after year , it must suit it !

I've got most of mine still outside, except the one's in my hanging basket, that i've fetched undercover. In fact most of them still have flowers on them.

I bought one Hawkshead this spring but after someone said it grew to 4ft in height I took it out of the hanging basket where I'd put it & put it into a much bigger pot. Unfortunately it hasn't grown at all. :-( It hasn't died either so perhaps next year it will grow up & I'll get some flowers.
