Is Fuschia 'Holly's Beauty' suitable for Australian conditions? What sort of climate does it like?



if you get know answers here it mite be worth looking for an australian garden centre wear you live or are going to and ask them maybe .

From what I've seen, Fuchsias do well anywhere the summer highs don't get above 37 deg. C, and the winter lows don't get much below -6 C. F. magellanica hybrids can take a little more frost, and F. triphylla hybrids can take a little more heat (though less frost). There are a few dodges to increase cold survival, but their isn't much to be done about heat. I confess that I don't know how 'Holly's Beauty' compares to other varieties.

Thanks Nosey and Tugbrethil, you have been very helpful. Will go to the garden centre and see what I can find.
