Fuchsia magellanica 'Alba'

This is a classic fuchsia which we have been growing in our garden for years under the name 'Silver Pink'. Do not let the Latin word for "white" in the name confuse you. The flowers of this form of Fuchsia magellanica `Alba' are truly pale pink. They are small but produced so freely that they create quite a show. The small foliage is mid-green. This upright shrub is tough, easy to grow and attractive to hummingbirds.

Summer to frost.  4-5 ft. x 4-5 ft.

Pale Pink 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.
