Gorgeous Fuchsias for Your Hanging Baskets and Pots
Summer Garden Ideas, Fall Garden Ideas
Among the most spectacular summer flowers, Fuchsias are outstanding garden plants with their continuous display of ravishing, dancing blossoms, dangling in clusters like prize jewels. Often blooming from late spring until the first frosts, they are available in a wide range of colors, from luscious pinks and purples to whites and even peach. Attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds, Fuchsias require little care and their various growing habits, from trailing and cascading to upright and bushy, make them the champions of hanging baskets, window boxes and containers. They are also wonderful in summer-bedding schemes, as flowering hedges, in permanent plantings or as standards.
There are thousands of cultivars and about 110 species found in the wild in Central and South America. Among them, the trailing or cascading Fuchsia varieties, with weak stems that flop and branch freely, are great selections for hanging baskets. Bringing bold color and visual interest to your home, they will brighten any dull corners and provide a lot of pleasure throughout the entire summer until the first frosts.
Here is a list of superb cascading or trailing Fuchsias. They are unmatched for their elegance and offer a great bonus, too: Hummingbirds love them.
