Fuchsia 'Rufus'

It is the size of the flowers that makes this fuchsia readily identifiable. At 2 inches long and 2.5 inches wide, they certainly draw attention to themselves. The red flower tube descends to glossy red sepals which only slightly recurve above the matte red corolla. Fuchsia `Rufus' is an open-habited, mid-sized shrub that is easy to place in the garden.

Summer to frost.  28 in. x 30 in.

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.
