Fuchsia 'DebRon's Black Cherry' - S1

Fuchsia 'DebRon's Black Cherry'

Fuchsia hyb.
Garnet sepals pop upward, creating a crown above the deep, velvety, eggplant purple skirts and ruby stamens of this unique fuchsia from Deb and Ron Monnier's nursery. The petite flowers cluster at the tips of the compact fuchsia, made even more beautiful, if that is possible, by the dark hunter-green foliage. Give this a favored place on the patio where small delights like this can be savored.

Fuchsia plants are a classic choice for summer containers in bright indirect light or gardens with morning sun and afternoon shade. They are elegant additions to hanging baskets or pots in sheltered positions, the curtains of dangling blossoms bringing hummingbirds like few other flowers. Overwinter rare specimens by pruning back by 1/3 and moving indoors into a basement or cool room once nighttime temperatures dip below 45F. Avoid fertilizing in winter, water sparingly, and clean up all leaf drop. They should resprout in spring when they can be repotted.
