Plant details

Peachy' has huge pink skirts, topped with lighter coloured petals. The individual blooms can measure up to 7.5cm (3in) across and are sure to make a colourful impact in your summer displays. Perfect for hanging baskets or the edges of containers, its lax stems naturally trail. Native to South America, this type of fuchsia is not hardy in the UK. To ensure a show the following year, take cuttings from your plants in late summer and overwinter plants in a light, frost-free place.
