The Fuchsia Cape Horn, Fuchsia ‘Cape Horn’?, is a truly hardy fuchsia with very distinctive single bloom flowers of magenta and purple coloring. The flowers appear mid summer through frost. They are great plants for greenhouses, window boxes, baskets, homes, and flower beds. Fuchsias should be planted in warm, sheltered spots in well-drained soil. These plants have dark green leaves often with red stems. Fuchsia are one of the Hummingbirds favorite flowers. Fuchsias do not like to dry out. Keep the soil moist to the touch from spring through autumn. In many parts of the country (and especially if planted in a hanging pot) the fuchsia will require daily watering.
