Shadow Dancer™ Fuchsias are a new generation of hybrid Fuchsias that have been bred to be more sun and heat tolerant than the Fuchsias of yesteryear, while still retaining the characteristically charming flowers of these popular plants.
Shadow Dancer™ Fuchsias are superb as container plants for courtyards and patios, whether in pots, hanging baskets or window boxes. They can also be planted in garden beds and borders that are sheltered from wind and strong sun. Fuchsias also make delightful indoor plants in good light but keep out of direct strong sunlight and draughts and given adequate water. Shadow Dancer™ varieties can be combined with other shade- and semi-shade-loving plants to make very attractive mixed plantings in containers.
Shadow Dancer™ Fuchsias should be planted in fertile, well-drained potting mix or soil, which should never be allowed to dry out. Regular light applications of liquid fertiliser and the removal of spent flowers and berry fruit will encourage an abundance of blooms over a long flowering period producing masses of flowers through winter and into summer. Shadow Dancer™ will add welcome colour and life to partially shaded areas, but gardeners can now also enjoy them in sunny spots too, as long as they are protected from hot midday sun.
These Fuchsias are marked as a revolution in Fuchsias breeding. They are all early flowering with masses of flower covering the outside of the bush. They were bred and selected in Germany by a dedicated fuchsia enthusiast. Starting some thirty years ago and still actively breeding in this one crop the breeder has achieved a real break through in the way fuchsias are regarded.
