Fuchsias are a popular choice for summer bedding schemes and containers, due to their attractive, usually pendent flowers from summer to autumn. Some are hardy enough to be used in perennial planting schemes, and may even be clipped into a low-growing hedge.
Fuchsia 'Mrs Popple' is a popular fuchsia, bearing masses of large single blooms with scarlet tube and sepals, and a violet purple corolla (skirt). In a sheltered area, it makes an impressive hedge. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Like all fuchsias, Fuchsia 'Mrs Popple' thrives in fertile, moist but well-drained soil, in a sheltered spot in partial shade. For best results, grow in a sheltered spot away from cold winter winds, and mulch the roots with a thick dressing of well-rotted manure or compost in autumn.
