Autumnale Fuchsia has some of the most beautiful foliage that we have ever seen. This fuchsia has red sepal/purple corolla flowers offset by pure gold leaves flushed with purple and orange. It is not a large plant, 6”-18” high by 15”-18” wide, which makes this a splendid trailing fuchsia which would be perfect for window boxes, hanging baskets, and containers. Hummingbirds love fuchsias and this one has proven to be one of their favorites.
As with most fuchsias it should be planted in a warm, sheltered spot in well-drained soil. Autumnale is an early blooming Fuchsia with flowers being produced summer through early fall. Fuchsias do not like to dry out so if it is planted in a hanging basket it may need daily watering. Keep the soil moist to the touch but not sopping wet.
