Fuchsia 'Porphyrio'

As the young leaves of Fuchsia 'Porphyrio' emerge in spring, they are dark purple. Even though they green up as they age, this fuchsia is always visibly one of the darkest we grow. Delicate, inch-long flowers have red tubes, red sepals and dark violet corrolas. We thank Monnier's Country Gardens for introducing us to this large, mounding shrub.

Summer to early autumn.  3 ft. x 3 ft.

Red/Dark Violet flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 7, 8, 9
In the maritime Pacific Northwest, we grow hardy Fuchsias in full sun where they bloom non-stop from late spring to first frost. In hotter climates, we recommend giving Fuchsias protection from the afternoon sun. Fuchsias make wonderful subjects in containers and for the mixed border.
