Even though Debbie and Ron Monnier's fuchsia nursery has closed, we can still enjoy the fruits of their labors in a series of new introductions, including Fuchsia `Debron's Smokey Blue'. Our friend, garden designer Lucy Hardiman introduced us to this beauty which she grows in a container near her entry garden. The mid-sized single flowers have deep rose-colored sepals and deep aubergine corollas. The leaf petioles are dark rose to complement the flowers. Lucy tells us that everyone who enters her garden asks the name of this hardy fuchsia.

Summer to early autumn.  2.5 ft. x 18 in.

Deep Rose/Aubergine flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 7, 8, 9
In the maritime Pacific Northwest, we grow hardy Fuchsias in full sun where they bloom non-stop from late spring to first frost. In hotter climates, we recommend giving Fuchsias protection from the afternoon sun. Fuchsias make wonderful subjects in containers and for the mixed border.
