(This is sometimes sold as Fuchsia magellanica v. macro. 'Tricolor'.) Fuchsia 'Gracilis Tricolor' is a fine foliage plant. The leaves require sun in order to maintain the rose suffusion in their white and green variegation. The stems and veins turn magenta red in the fall if exposed to sun. The flowers are small with long slender red tubes and sepals over purple corollas. Very hardy for the Pacific Northwest.

Late spring to frost.  3 ft. x 5 ft.

Red/Purple flowers

Part Shade     Zones 7, 8, 9, 10
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.
