Scarlet Fuchsia Bush
Quantity in Basket:
An erect multiple stemmed shrub or small tree to 9 feet with attractive glossy green foliage. Waxy, deep red, 1 inch tubular flowers occur in spring and early summer. In a good season, the plant becomes a mass of brilliant scarlet red flowers. Plant does sucker, creating a clump. Best flowering in full sun. Drought tolerant. Slow growing. As an Australian native plant, be sure that any fertilizer used has very little phosphorus. Nectar feeding birds, such as hummingbirds, find the flowers irresistible. Can be grown from a cool temperate to tropical climate, but protect from frost. USDA zones 9 to 12.
