Product Information

If you're looking for something a little different then this Miniature-Flowered Fuchsia is one of the more unusual types of fuchsia - an elegant fuchsia with tiny blooms

An upright, deciduous shrub with a dense texture, fuchsia microphylla is a garden rarity; its glossy, mid-green leaves have a silver sheen to them and combine beautifully with its red-coloured stems and pink flowers.

In spring the tiny dark pink buds open to dainty hanging magenta-pink tubular bells of bloom followed by edible, dark black fruits in the autumn so there's plenty to keep your garden interesting through the spring and into autumn.

The nectar rich flowers are a magnet to insects and with a long season of interest, your fuchsia will help attract a wide range of wildlife into your garden and provide a valuable food source for many pollinating insects.

Easy to grow and compact enough to be grown in a pot Silver Lining is half-hardy so will need winter protection.

Supplied as 3 established plants in 9cm pots ready for planting out when all risk of frost has passed. Flowers May to July. Grows to 70cm x 45cm
