Unless you live in a very mild area fuchsia is not a good choice for a hedge. I've seen tree like fuchsias and hedges in SW Ireland and I think they grow like that in SW England. For most of us the top dies and it grows from the base every year. Occasionally mine have regrown on the old stems and I've left them but usually regret it as they never look so good. There are no tougher fuchsias than that one, you haven't got the wrong fuchsia.
