A bushy hardy Fuchsia with arching branches and largish leaves which is good because they are one of the good things about this selection being richly colored in red if grown in ample sun. The flowers are no slouch either and they have to bring it to keep up with the leaves and that they do with a red exterior and a double purple interior corolla. Winter mulch.
Fuchsia 'DebRon's Black Cherry'
A fine hardy hybrid from Deb and Ron Monnier whose nursery, Monnier's Country Gardens in Woodburn, OR closed in 2009. This knockout will keep the memory alive for years to come. Maroon tube and sepals embrace a corolla that is black velvet eggplant in color with an optical texture that is almost 3D. To 3' and hardy in the PNW. Mulch in winter.
This hardy bush Fuchsia is quite a pleasing addition to the garden where it performs admirably in a sunny spot with lots of narrow hanging white flowers which are touched in faintest green on the tepal tips. Recent winters have put a whupping on reliably hardy plants so if it is going to turn nasty, mulch the base and trunk well. Easy and gratifying.
(Out of Stock)
A petite hardy Fuchsia whose smaller leaves and short pancake mounding habit which plays well with the numerous narrow flowers that have reddish-pink sepals and a purple corolla. This small but mighty Fuchsia is quite free flowering all summer and is of a size that works in containers or front of the garden bed.
Fuchsia boliviana NAB 043
This hails from the mild Crinodendron tucumanum/Podocarpus parlatorei cloud forests of northern Argentina. It thrives as an understory plant and competes well in the tangle of rampant growth clothing shaded banks along the road. Pendulous bright red clusters of long flowers give way to edible-if-the-fruit-stand-is-closed fruits.
Fuchsia campos-portoi - UCBG clone
A cold-tolerant species from Brazil that was discovered in 1934. This not-so-common species gives the effect of a smaller Fuchsia magellanica with the small deep pink and purple flowers but on a smaller scale. In our cooler climate, this will get to 3' or so while in warmer, longer season zones, perhaps to 5'. Once well established, this will spread gently via rhizomes but easy to keep in bounds and perfect for sharing, furthering your propagation reputation.
This is not a Fuchsia to which one can remain indifferent. A tender species from South America, this is a winter-bloomer with long, thin flowers appearing at leaf fall and then adorning the 3'-5' bare stems. The distinctly softly lavender-pink flowers lack an inner corolla presenting a very pleasing minimalist design aesthetic and the large orange fruit which follow are an unexpectedly discordant delight.

Fuchsia procumbens hybrid
Odd Fuchsia hybrid which we got as cuttings from an old Heronswood employee. It appears to be a procumbens x excorticata cross with small red leaves on a low mounding plant. The narrow flowers are a metallic dull purple and while not showy, gets credit for being interesting.
