Fuchsias are one of the world’s more popular garden plants and they have been in cultivation for a couple of centuries. The genus originates mostly from Sth America and consists of more than 100 species and over a thousand cultivars. There are a variety of species forms grown but most gardeners have selected cultivars from the parents Fuchsia magellanica, Fuchsia fulgens and Fuchsia triphylla.
‘Beacon’ is an attractive mounding form that has an upright form with pretty rose pink and magenta bellshaped flowers. In ideal conditions it will grow to 80 cm high and wide with masses of flowers from early spring to late autumn. It is more heat tolerant than most Fuchsia and will grow well in most suburban gardens
‘Beacon’ is a great addition to any garden. A light trim in late autumn and a feed with Osmocote in mid spring will keep the plant looking good. Looks great planted with other free flowering plants like Salvia microphylla ‘Cyclamen’ and ‘Hot Lips’, Geranium ‘Rozanne’, Polemonium ‘Bressingham Purple’ and Hydrangea ‘Saturn’
