Fuchsia 'Tennessee Waltz'

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 'Tennessee Waltz' bears masses of rose-pink flowers with lilac-lavender skirts (corollas). It has an upright, self-branching habit which makes it ideal for training into a wide variety of shapes, including lollipop-shaped standards.

For best reslts grow Fuchsia 'Tennessee Waltz' in a sheltered spot away from cold winter winds, and give roots a thick mulch in autumn. All fuchsias benefit from fertile, moist but well-drained soil.
