Fuchsia 'Roesse Blacky'

At a quick glance, Fuchsia 'Roesse Blacky' looks like F. 'Maxima', however, 'Roesse Blacky' is even smokier in flower color and its flowers and foliage are larger. With very glossy purple red sepals which recurve to almost upright position revealing matte red undersides and very dusky, near black corolla, the flowers of Fuchsia 'Roesse Blacky' are very exotic and mysterious, and complemented by midgreen foliage which is somewhat rounded with red central veins that echo the flower.

Summer to frost.  12 in. x 18 in.

Purple Red flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 8, 9, 10
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.
