Hardy fuchsias grow well in many positions and soils, and are a popular choice for shaded borders, especially where they are also shielded from cold winds. Even the hardiest kinds usually lose their top growth to frost except in the mildest gardens, but provided the roots are safe new growth will revive in spring. 'Mrs Popple' is a well-established and favourite variety, free-flowering with large single blooms - the tube and sepals are scarlet, while the corolla (skirt) is violet purple. In a sheltered area, this makes an impressive hedge.The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.

Simple to grow, lovely to look at this fuchsia is simple to propagate, and is very forgiving. It grows just as well in a pot as in the soil, the flowers are plentiful and prolific, the leaves a darkish green which form a lovely background for the flowers. You won't regret buying or aquiring this one.:D
