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.

Cultivars of Fuchsia triphylla usually have longer flower tubes than more commonly cultivated types of fuchsia. They also bear leaves in sets of three, rather than two (Triphylla means three leaved). The species is native to sub-tropical regions, so are best grown in pots, which can be brought into a conservatory or greenhouse in autumn. They tolerate more sun than other fuchsias, and produce an abundance of flowers in summer.
