Product Details

From the species known as the Hardy Fuchsia, Fuchsia magellanica 'Grand Cape Horn' is a hummingbird favorite for its dainty flowers produced over a long season. Slender, tubular blossoms of deep rose pink and purple dangle from dark pink stems adding bright color to the border from midsummer into fall. Plants make a good informal hedge in mild climates, but die back like perennials elsewhere.

Fuchsia is a genus of about 50 species, which include both shrubs and small trees native to Central and South America. Most are tropicals that cannot survive freezing temperatures. They are greatly valued as ornamentals because they bloom heavily and constantly throughout the summer months in partial shade. They make ideal seasonal landscape plants in mild climates and a superb choice for pots, planters, and hanging baskets in colder areas.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

Healthy plant

I love Fuchsia and I'm looking forward to growing this Hardy one. The plant I received is very healthy. I have it in my kitchen window until I find the perfect pot for it. I plan of overwintering in my unheated garage so it doesn't totally die back in the winter. I hope to have a nice potted fuchsia on my porch every year to welcome the hummingbirds!

Sent Too Soon

I read the two previous reviews about the plants being sent too early. The same thing just happened to me. It will be at least a month before it can go outside in Pittsburgh, Pa. The roots were growing out of the bottom of the pot so I put it in a larger pot in a sunny window for now.

Total failure

Plants were sent a month too early, so they got leggy living in the house. Once I was able to put them out they never adapted. Tried them in partial shade, more leggy growth. Moved to a Somewhat sunnier location they dried out. I have grow fuchsia magelllanica this climate, just wanted to try a different variety. Where is Amos Pettingill when you need him?

I am sorry to learn these plants shipped too early for your zone and this is ultimately why they failed Margaret. All annuals are guaranteed until the fall and I will be contacting you via email regarding compensation.

In most parts of the country, Fuchsias perform best in partial shade and moist but well-drained soil. Here at our nursery in Morris, though, they also grow well in full sun.

Most of the Fuchsias we offer are annuals (hardy to Zone 9 [20°]). In all but the mildest winter climates, bring plants indoors before frost and overwinter in a sunny window in a cool room. Set back outdoors after the danger of frost has passed in spring.

We also offer varieties from the species known as Hardy Fuchsia (F. magellanica). These robust varieties can be overwintered outdoors in Zone 6 if mulched heavily. They make a good informal hedge in mild climates, but die back like perennials in cooler areas of the country, such as Zone 6.
