This is possibly not winter hardy for us in the Pacific Northwest but it is so beautiful that we grow it anyway. The very large flowers are semi-double. Their sepals and tubes are burgundy red while their corollas are very dark aubergine. Interestingly, the corollas flare out like little skirts. The black fruits are as large as small black olives.

Summer.  15 in. x 15 in.

Burgundy Red/Aubergine flowers

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.
