Fuchsia 'Maxima'

Summer Bedding, Hanging baskets, Containers


Incredibly pretty, Fuchsia 'Maxima' is an upright, trailing, deciduous shrub with a profusion of very large, semi-double flowers adorned with burgundy-red tubes and sepals and dark purple corollas. Blooming from early summer until frost, they stand out against the foliage of dark green leaves. The flowers give way to fruits reminiscent of small black olives. Attractive to bees and hummingbirds, this flowering shrub makes an excellent summer bedding plant and is perfect for hanging baskets or containers.

  • Grows up to 12-18 in. tall and wide (30-45 cm).
  • A full sun to part shade lover, this plant is best grown in moist, fertile, well-drained soils. Provide a deep winter mulch and shelter from cold drying winds.
  • Plant as a specimen or in small groups. Perfect for summer bedding, cottage gardens, hanging baskets or containers.
  • In early to mid-spring cut back the previous year's flowering stems to within one or two buds of the older woody framework. Also remove any thin, weak or dead growth. This stimulates development of strong new growth on which flowers will be produced in late summer.
  • Propagate by softwood or semi-hardwood cuttings
  • Watch for rust, capsid bug and caterpillars.
