Fuchsia 'Neon Tricolor'

This is a beautiful, yet curious fuchsia which lives up to its name with its dramatic flowers. The early flower buds are lime green with fused red tubes. They are only a hint of what's to come. Once the buds begin to stretch, they form inch-long tubes with green and white tips. Then, when the flowers open, the white sepals have distinct lime green tips which recurve above coral orange corollas. Young buds form in upward facing sets of 2 or 3 at the leaf axils. As the buds develop into flowers, they face down and slightly away from the main stem as if anticipating the approach of a passing hummingbird. The rich, dark green foliage of Fuchsia `Neon Tricolor' is flushed scarlet when young.

Summer to frost.   4-5 ft. x 3-4 ft.

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.
