Chilean Fuchsia-1 Qt Pot [SPRING]
These are seedlings from 3000 feet up in the coastal mountains of Chile where they grow as 6Æ tall understory bushes in ôalerceö Chilean cedar forests. The beautiful flowers have red sepals and a purple corolla though as seedlings they will be variable. The edible fruit is purple when ripe and is favored in making marmalade. Like other hardy fuschias they would benefit from a winter mulch in colder winter areas. Select two to insure pollination. Estimated USDA Zones 7-9. Give them partial sun (full sun in cool summer areas is fine!) and a well drained, moist soil out of drying winds. One quart pot.
