Fuchsia arborescens (Lilac Fuchsia) is an evergreen shrub with beautiful pink bell-shaped flowers that can provide year-round color in cool climates. Its major attraction is the dramatic looking long drooping clusters of blooms. It thrives best when given full sun and semi-shade, and requires regular watering for best results.
Planting this shrub is easy. It can be planted in the ground, or grown in containers, as it is a hardy plant. In areas where winters can get very cold, it is best to grow Fuchsia arborescens in containers and move them indoors when cold weather sets in.
