Growing "Winston Churchill" Fuchsias
I spent some time with my “Winston Churchill” Fuchsia today and did some research on pruning for the coming spring. Fuchsias produce breathtaking flowers and are somewhat hardy plants. They do however need to be protected from winter frost/ snow so I brought our potted fuchsia inside when winter came. Luckily winter is winding down in Northern Arizona and my fuchsia will be ready to go back outside soon!
I noticed that it was getting a bit leggy today so I spent some time pinching it back and taking some cuttings. Apparently fuchsias are easy to propagate via stem cuttings so I thought I would give it a try!
The Winston Churchill Fuchsia can withstand temperatures as low as 35 degrees and prefers light shade, sun to shady conditions. It blooms in the summer and fall. The blooms are simply amazing, they are pink & purple and are so unique (click here to see a Google image search showing these stunning blooms!! I can’t wait for mine to start blooming!
