Fuchsia magellanica 'Arauco' is a hardy Fuchia that will become covered in a mass of elegant tricoloured blooms all summer long.
The blooms are soft pink, white and purple, and as with all Fuchsia, the flowers are narrow and dainty compared to other species.
Once fully established, Fuchsia plants will form a compact upright bush of continuous colour from early summer until late autumn.
Water well during the first season after planting during prolonged heat in summer. Once established in the garden, this Fuschia will be fairly drought resistant.
Fuchsias are a great pollinator-friendly plant that will have your garden buzzing with life in the summer.
If you are planting a Fuschia in the garden, lightly fork over it to loosen the soil. Add in organic matter by digging in some Peat-free compost. Once the soil is mixed, dig a small hole with a spade and add a generous handful of Mycorrhizal fungi to the bottom of the planting hole. Place the Fuschia plant and back-fill with soil. Make sure you have not buried the plant lower in the ground than in the pot. After planting, firm the soil around the plant, so the plant's roots are in touch with the garden soil. After planting, water thoroughly. Ensure the soil is moist but not too wet for the first two weeks.
Spring: Feed with a seaweed feed in late spring to encourage healthy spring growth
Summer: Deadhead throughout summer to ensure continuous blooms.
Autumn: Cut back after flowering in late autumn to keep the plant looking tidy. This will also maintain compact form and improve vigour stopping the plant from becoming too woody.
